What to Expect

First, sign up with your email address and fill out a short questionnaire. You will receive an immediate response to let you know if you pre-qualify or not. If you pre-qualify, you will be asked to fill out and sign a Medical Release Form, so we may quickly begin working with your healthcare provider to acquire the needed medical records. Your participation in this study will start as soon as you begin to notice recurring C. diff symptoms and before you start your antibiotics treatment for your diarrhea. It is important that you contact us before you begin your standard antibiotic treatment because participation will involve a screening period of 10-21 days while you take antibiotics. But don’t worry, we will send you reminders to ensure you don’t miss this important step. We will also guide you through the steps of the informed consent form and then your enrollment into the trial. We have this process in place so you understand what is expected, what your role is, and how the study works.

Study participation may last up to 6.5 months. Once you sign the informed consent, your patient journey will look like this:

● Screening period: 10-21 days (Participant must provide a stool sample as early in this process as possible)
● Treatment period: 14 days
●Follow-Up Period: Approx. 150 days

Your patient journey will include both telemedicine and in-home visits with a medical professional. The details of your journey will be found in the informed consent document which you will be given ample time to review prior to discussing with the study team. You will be given an opportunity to ask any questions to your Clinical Research Coordinator or study doctor at this discussion.

Step 1: Sign up today to see if you pre-qualify!
You will be notified within minutes if you are eligible to move forward in the study!
Step 2: You call or email us at the onset of any CDI symptoms.
Your participation in this study will start as soon as you begin to notice recurring CDI symptoms and before you start your antibiotics treatment. It is important that you contact us at this point and before you begin your standard antibiotic treatment because participation will involve a screening period of 10-21 days while you take antibiotics. But rest assured, we will send you text and email reminders regularly throughout this period.
Step 3: A Clinical Research Coordinator will contact you for an Informed Consent visit.
You will have a call with your designated Clinical Research Coordinator to help you through the informed consent and any other study related procedures.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How are Science 37 research studies different?

Our core focus is making the clinical research experience better for patients — we use a site-less, decentralized approach to conducting research that puts participants first. That’s why we make sure that any part of the research study that can be done remotely comes to you in your home. People join research studies to help move science forward, and our model allows you to spend more time participating in the research, not traveling to a research site.

What does a typical research study look like?

There are different types of research studies, including those that are observational, where no drug is given to the patient, and interventional, where a drug/device/procedure is used. The government has established many rules to help ensure that research studies are conducted in the most ethical and safest way possible and that participants are protected throughout.

Why volunteer to take part in a research study?

Volunteers are part of the next wave of science and can influence the future of medicine. Advances in research have allowed people to get new treatments, new diagnostic tests, new procedures, etc., and these breakthroughs wouldn’t be possible without volunteers.

Can I tell my doctor? Will my doctor get involved?

You can always share information about the research study with your primary doctor or healthcare provider. We encourage you to do so, especially if this is someone you know well and trust. Your doctor can be an additional resource when you are first learning about a research study and have any questions. You can continue to see your doctor throughout the research study for routine visits and tests. Our study team is available to talk to both you and your doctor
if there are any concerns or questions. Working together helps to ensure that other medications or treatments you receive will not be a problem with the research study protocol. However, because these studies are investigational, the result of the study will not be available to individual patients.

Will taking part in a research study cost me anything?

There is no cost to participate, and many research studies offer reimbursement for your time and effort. Compensation depends on the research study and is discussed during the informed consent process.

How long is a research study?

Research studies are designed by a team of expert scientists, physicians, and statisticians. The duration of a research study varies depending on the protocol that this team develops. When you learn about a research study, you will be informed about the time commitment needed before you agree to participate.

How do I take part in a research study from home? How do I receive study supplies?

Science 37 research studies are designed to make participation easier for you. Where permitted, study supplies, like questionnaires and supplies for lab collection are shipped directly to your home. If you have any problems with receiving the supplies, you will be able to contact the study team at any time.

Can I talk to other people about the research study?

Besides talking to the study staff, you should minimize sharing your experience in the research study with others. We understand that talking about your experience is an important part of feeling supported, but we ask that you not share information about t
he research study on social media or with other research study participants. This helps to ensure the most valid and highest-quality scientific results are obtained. Our study team is always available to address your questions and concerns.

What if I want to leave a research study?

You can leave the research study at any time and for any reason. You are under no obligation to complete a research study or give a reason why you’re leaving one. Although we do our best to make our research studies as easy as possible for you to take part in, we understand that there are many reasons why finishing may not be possible. However, if you do not complete the study, any potential compensation will not be available to you.

What happens to me after I complete the research study?

After you complete the research study, the study team will talk with you to answer your questions and get your feedback on your overall experience during the trial. As a Science 37 research study participant, you will have access to news and updates about medical discoveries, educational content, and future research opportunities. You will continue to see your local primary doctor or healthcare provider for routine medical care.
