Stop Smoking! A New Year...A New You!

The first of the year always forces us to think about resolutions with the hopes of achieving new personal goals.  If you are a cigarette smoker and your resolution is to quit this habit that has so many adverse health consequences, Omega Medical Research, may have a research study for you. 

In this New Year, Omega Medical Research is conducting a research study to help understand the changes the body goes through following a year of smoking cessation. The study will not only help researchers know the favorable effects smoking cessation has on the body, but will also provide each participant with extensive smoking cessation support in the form of counseling and behavioral support, as well as training and reimbursement for the use of nicotine replacement therapy. This combination of methods of support has been shown to markedly increase the success rate of quitting smoking. People who participate in this study may  benefit from study-related health check-ups.

To participate, patients must be between 30-65 years of age, must be in good health, must have been smoking at least 10 cigarettes per day for the past 12 months and must have smoked any amount for the past 10 years. Additionally, participants must be willing to quit smoking. Make that resolution today!! Call our patient recruiter, Patty Feole, RN at 401-739-3573 to see if you qualify.

Do you or your child SUFFER from UNSIGHTLY Cold Sores?

If you or your child (12 year or older) has experience at least 3 or more cold sores per year during the past 2 years you (or your child) may qualify for a clinical research study involving a topical investigational cream for recurrent cold sores.

Patients are asked to come in for their 1st visit when they do not have a cold sore.  They are given a tube of study medication to apply at home when they start to feel their cold sore coming on.

There is no cost to qualified volunteers and those who participate will be compensated for time and travel whether or not you develop a cold sore during the course of the study.

For more details call Patty Feole, RN at 401-739-3573.  Hurry!!! The study will be fully enrolled very soon.
