About The Research...
MAC Clinical Research is currently running a trial to test a new treatment for Erectile Dysfunction (ED).
The purpose of this study is to test a drug for the potential treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED). Erectile dysfunction is the term used to describe when a man is unable to develop or sustain an erection, which can lead to difficulties in having sexual intercourse. The drugs that are currently available to treat ED work by relaxing the blood vessels in the penis, so more blood can flow through the penis to produce an erection. Although these drugs are effective in treating the condition in some men, approximately 30% to 40% of them do not respond to this treatment.
The study drug is a new compound which works in a different way by enhancing the effects of substances in the body such as dopamine to help stimulate an erection. The study drug is being developed in the hope that it will treat men in whom current treatments for ED do not work.
The main aims of this study are:
- To assess the safety and tolerability of the study drug
- To see how the body absorbs and removes the study drug
- To assess the effect of the study drug on the body
The study will require a Screening visit, 2 x 1-night residential Stays and a Follow up visit.
Whilst at MAC, on the two days you come in, you will be asked to apply a Rigiscan device to your penis. This is a piece of equipment which measures the strength of the erection you get after watching an “Adult” film. This will be done in a private room at various times after you have been dosed with the drug (or placebo).
Eligible patients will receive a comprehensive health screen and study participation will be in collaboration with the patient’s treating physician.

“I would like to congratulate the amazing team at MAC Clinical Research, based on Faraday Way, Blackpool for all their hard work, dedication and support during my last study. The staff couldn’t have been more courteous, warm and friendly. They all took the time to get to know me as a person as well as a study participant. This resulting in me feeling valued and positive about my future. The Doctor was outstanding and I have so much gratitude and thanks to him for his time and support. I would highly recommend anyone who is considering participating in a study with MAC to take the plunge as the end results can be life changing.”
“Couldn’t have asked for any better support or a better first clinical trial. Really supportive, helped me cope with dark and stressful issues in my life. Hope to come back again in the future. I will miss my visits.”
“Having recently attended MAC for a medical trial, I have to say what a pleasure it was. The trial ran for several weeks and it was like visiting friends on a weekly basis. All the staff from the Receptionist to the Clinicians and the Doctor were really great and most caring. At the same time they were very professional and very thorough, so as to make sure that the trial medication was not affecting my health in any adverse way. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”
