Paid clinical trial for Type 1 diabetic patients aged 20-64

Volunteer today!

Study summary

We are carrying out a clinical trial in Type 1 diabetic patients to compare the effect of glucose alone and in combination with moxifloxacin (a commonly used antibiotic) on the changes in electrocardiogram (ECG). An ECG is a technique for recording the electrical activity of the heart. This may be useful for preventing ‘Sudden Cardiac Death’ which is more common in diabetic patients compared to healthy people.

This study will be conducted at our clinical trials unit in London Bridge and will involve Type 1 diabetic patients. You will need to attend a screening appointment within 20 days of admission. If successful, you will be required to be in our unit for 1 in-house stay of 5 days / 4 nights and 1 follow-up visit 7-14 days after receiving the last dose of the study drug.

Study dates

Screening and admission for the trial will be discussed during your telephone screening.
