Patient Information on Local Research Projects
The University of Oxford frequently asks local surgeries to put up posters and information for patients on upcoming research projects. Due to limited space on our waiting room noticeboards, they are no longer put up in the waiting room, but posted on our website for patients who may be interested.
Any patient or member of the public interested in participating in a study should contact the university directly.
1. Are you male, aged 18-60 and overweight? - This clinical research study involves a four week treatment period and study visits to the Churchill Hospital in Headington. Anyone interested in taking part should email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01865 857246 (posted 3.9.2015)
2. Baby Vaccine Study - This paediatric research study is looking at 2 different infant vaccination schedules, specifically the newly introduced meningitis B (MenB) vaccine called Bexsero. The study is looking for children between 8 and 12 weeks old, and they will be given their routine immunisations up until 13 months of age. 2 blood tests and a nasopharyngeal swab will be taken. Parents will be asked to keep a health diary to monitor side effects from the vaccine. Blood tests will be carried out throughout the study. Anyone interest in participating should go to the website or email the team on email@example.com or phone them on 01865 857420 (posted 23.9.15).
