If you or a loved one has Parkinson’s disease, your biological sample donation could be the missing link to finding these better treatments and cure.
Since 1992, Bradenton Research Center has completed over 150 clinical research studies. The diseases we’ve studied include Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Influenza, Migraines, Neuropathic Pain, Gout, Hypertension, Stroke, Type 2 Diabetes, Diabetic Neuropathy, Epilepsy, COVID-19, and many others.
Located in Bradenton, we do serve the greater southwest Florida area and are fighting the battle with so many who suffer from varying medical conditions. Patients enrolled in our studies are closely monitored by our research physicians and coordinators. All study-related care and medication is provided to our patients at no cost.
Patient caregivers are always welcome, giving them every opportunity to be fully involved in their loved one’s progress. With a team of knowledgeable and experienced staff, our goal is to continue to help find these better treatments and cures.
The PrecMed Parkinson’s Study
Parkinson’s Disease is a lifelong condition, involving many neurological changes in the body. It is a progressive disease of the nervous system marked by tremor, muscular rigidity, and slow, imprecise movement, chiefly affecting middle-aged and elderly people.
The purpose of the PrecMed Parkinson’s Study is to collect biological samples from subjects with Parkinson’s disease. These samples may contain substances that the researchers will be able to analyze to study their genetic, protein, and chemical composition.
The study will look at blood and cerebrospinal fluid differences associated with Parkinson’s disease, or with other aspects of the illness. The cells from your blood may be retained as cell lines grown from your blood to be used in the future. This sample could potentially assist in the development of a new drug treatment or a new diagnostic test for Parkinson’s.
