Most of you know how I feel about clinical trials, but my own personal thought aside: another one has hit my inbox and is currently recruiting. I wanted to share it with you in case YOU wanted to look into it deeper and apply.
The Edelweiss Study is for Endometriosis. From what I can research, it appears to be medicine-based and may be a pill-form. If you’re totally cool with participating in a drug-based clinical trial, give it a go. I will never judge or try to talk you out of it. ❤
There are locations conducting the study in both Los Angeles and San Diego, as well as other locations around the United States. For more information and to enroll in the study, please visit the Edelweiss site for more information.
IF KNOWING MORE ABOUT THE DRUG AND THE HISTORY OF TESTS MAY PRECLUDE YOU FROM THE STUDY, please don’t read this last paragraph:
From what I can gather from clinicaltrials.gov, the Phase2 of the OBE2109/Edelweiss study started in 2016 and ended in July of 2019 for women with Endometriosis pain. No results were posted. Studies are currently going on with the same drug regarding fibroids (with and without the Add-Back pill). And a safety study was conducted of a drug named “Linzagolix” (aka OBE2109) on women with impaired liver function. No results were posted. Linzagolix is made by Obseva and is a GnRH receptor antagonist. According to Obseva’s webpage, Clinical Trials Phase 3 are looking to enroll 900 women. A quick google search of Linzagolix & Edelweiss confirms it’s one and the same. I’m no medical doctor, but I know that Orilissa (AbbVie’s pill similar to Lupron Depot) is a GnRH antagonist. I am assuming the risks and side effects may be similar. Please do your research, make an informed decision, and never be afraid to opt out of a study once you’ve already enrolled.
