Migraine Research Study 
 The National Headache Foundation estimates that 28 million Americans get migraine headaches, women more than men.

A migraine starts when overactive nerve cells send out signals that make the brain's blood vessels narrow and then expand. That creates the sensation of pulsating pain.

Doctor's do not know the exact causes for migraines but some believe it has to do with changes in the brain and possible inherited genes from family.

The Clinical Research Center is enrolling for an investigational migraine research study. Please call if you have more than 2 migraines per month but no more than 8 per month (in the last 6 months) and are between the ages of 18-65. Compensation for participation. Contact Monica at 314-514-8509 to learn more details.  

Please call or email
Monica to learn more at  314-514-8509 or
We look
forward to hearing from you.

Asthma & COPD Studies

The CRC is currently conducting a number of COPD and Asthma studies.   To learn more about these and all the studies we are currently enrolling for visit our Current Studies page.

Chronic Urticaria (Hives)
Itchy Hives
Hives are an itchy skin reaction that appears as red or white welts or a rash anywhere on the skin. The welts can vary in size or appear as one large rash. Hives can appear and fade as the reaction runs it's course.  
Chronic Hives is a condition where the hives last more than 6 weeks and can recur over months or years. Chronic hives can pose a very uncomfortable daily issue which can interrupt sleep and daily activities.

The Clinical Research Center is testing an investigational medication for Chronic Urticaria.  Your hives must be present at the time of your visit.

To Qualify:
  • You must be 18-75 years old
  • You must have a diagnosis of Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria for at least 6 months 
  • You must have had hives present for at least 6 consecutive weeks despite treatment   
  • You must be using daily antihistamines to treat your Urticaria (hives)  
  • The cause of your Urticaria (hives) must be unknown
