NEW clinical trial for healthy males aged between 20 and 40. Get paid for your time!

We are carrying out a clinical trial with an investigational drug that is being developed for the treatment of Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV). RSV infection can cause lower respiratory tract infections in infants, small children, the elderly and patients with immune system disorders, respiratory or cardiovascular diseases. RSV is also associated with an increased risk of developing recurrent wheezing and asthma in children. RSV infection in these populations is a major cause of morbidity (illness) and mortality. There are very limited management options for RSV infection and disease. There is an urgent need for a well-tolerated and effective therapy. The results of this study will help us to plan for future clinical trials in patients with RSV.
