Fibromyalgia Clinical Trials

General Purpose:

Living with fibromyalgia entails living in constant pain. This common syndrome can affect the entire body, making it a challenge to perform basic activities of daily living. Clinical research is therefore attempting to improve the quality of life of those afflicted with fibromyalgia.

Though the exact cause of fibromyalgia has yet to be uncovered, evidence suggests the involvement of the central nervous system. As a result, many clinical trials intend to enhance the understanding of this syndrome, as well as its diagnosis.

Clinical research is also working relentlessly to improve the painful symptoms associated with fibromyalgia, through a diverse array of interventional methods. If you are suffering from fibromyalgia, participating in a clinical trial is an excellent way to find an improved approach to living well with this syndrome and to positively impact the lives of others who are also living with fibromyalgia.

What will  Fibromyalgia Clinical Trials be like?

Clinical trials for fibromyalgia will conduct screenings of each potential participant, which may include a physical exam, medical history, and clinical assessment based on the 1990 American College of Rheumatology (ACR) diagnostic criteria for fibromyalgia. Depending on the specific trial, the study doctor may request additional tests for each individual.

The goal is to ensure that you are the proper fit for a trial. Researchers understand the great burden of living with fibromyalgia, so they aim to select participants that will gain a benefit from taking part in the trial, ideally for both them and other patients struggling with this detrimental condition.

Since the cause of fibromyalgia remains unclear and there is no completely effective treatment available, there is an extensive range of interventional methods beings evaluated. As a result, you must make sure to pick a clinical trial that you feel comfortable participating in after reading the informed consent and learning about what it will entail.

Inclusion criteria are intended to provide benefit and avoid wasting your time. They are also put in place to avoid any risk, which could result if, for example, the trial were assessing a new pharmaceutical treatment that had detrimental interactions with another medication that you are taking. Moreover, you should consult with your current physician if you are unsure about getting involved.

Typical Fibromyalgia Clinical Trial Protocol:

Given the imprecise understanding of this condition and the lack of a completely effectiveFibromyalgia clinical trials treatment, different trial protocols may vary greatly. Regarding interventional studies, treatment methods may vary from exercise to an alternative medicine approach. Ultimately, most interventional studies will randomly assign you to a group. In this group you will participate in a treatment or a control for comparison.

A behavioral intervention trial may conduct a comparative analysis between two different forms of exercise to determine which best manages pain and improves functioning. In other words, the trial will attempt to determine the most effective intervention for improving the fibromyalgia symptoms that impact your quality of life.

They would determine this by having specified checkpoints throughout the duration of the study in which they obtain assessments of the treatment’s success, which may simply require a questionnaire.

They may also attempt to determine the optimal frequency and duration of such behavioral interventions by further splitting participants up into different treatment specifications. Other studies might follow a similar outline, but instead the treatment may involve a pharmaceutical, a supplement, a current stimulation, etc.

Trials intending to expand the knowledge base of fibromyalgia may include an improved diagnostic measure, such as MRI, to make observations about the manifestations of this condition.
