What type of trials do we run?

We are participating in multiple Phase II-IV clinical research trials sponsored by major pharmaceutical companies to evaluate the effectiveness of medications for the treatment of epilepsy. We also conduct internal studies on important questions raised by our own research and provide access to medications not normally available in Australia.

 

Who is eligible?

We are currently enrolling children and adults diagnosed with partial or generalised epilepsy into our clinical research trials. The design of clinical trials often requires strict criteria to be met before people can be enrolled to ensure that the trials are safe, ethical and able to provide meaningful data about new treatments. Patients do need to be local so that they are able to attend regular visits with our clinical trials coordinators.  All trials are supervised by the Human Research Ethics Committee of Austin Health and follows strict guidelines set out by the National Health and Medical Research Council.

If you or someone you know may be interested in participating in one of these trials please contact Paul Lightfoot or Georgie Glubb:
