About This clinical research study

We are currently working to develop treatments which could be used to treat painful conditions however, we need volunteers to make this happen.

42 healthy male and female participants will take part in this study at our Greater Manchester clinic.

Your skin contains nerve fibers that transmit pain signals. The goal of this study is to find out how an investigational drug, impacts these nerve signals under regular conditions in healthy participants, in the absence of pain. This study does NOT involve any pain stimulus. We will evaluate the effect of the investigational drug on the transmission of nerve signals that travel through a superficial (deep in the skin) nerve located on one of your feet using a technique named microneurography (MNG). This technique requires the insertion of tiny needles called micro-electrodes into the skin. You may experience a small pinch (like the one from a blood draw) as the micro-electrodes are inserted.

Clinical research studies are performed as a way of bringing about progress in medicine and research. Clinical research studies make it possible to scientifically assess the properties of a drug, to demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of a treatment or a medical device, or to learn more about a disease and methods to diagnose and monitor it.

If the study is successful, it may be an important step towards developing a promising new treatment.

MAC Clinical Research is currently conducting a new clinical research study for Male and Female Healthy Volunteers.
