Clinical Trials

Lakeland Clinical Trials Wellington

Clinical trials are a key research tool for advancing medical knowledge and patient care.

A clinical trial involves research using human volunteers (also called participants) that is intended to add to our medical knowledge. In a clinical trial participants receive specific interventions or treatment according to the research plan or protocol. This sets out in detail the process and design of the study, the treatment(s) to be used and the measurements that will be required.

All parties (investigators, study co-ordinators and pharmaceutical company employees) involved with the development and testing of the study medicine must follow the study protocol.

The people who volunteer to be studied during these trials are advised beforehand of possible risks.

Over 60’s Urinary Tract Infection Vaccine

People aged 60 years or older, with a history of urinary tract infection (UTI), are at an increased risk of developing a bloodstream infection caused by an E. coli bacteria.

A clinical research study to assess the effectiveness and safety of an investigational vaccine in the prevention of bloodstream infection is now enrolling.

You may be eligible to participate if you:

• Are 60 years of age or older

• Have had a UTI in the past 2 years

• Feel comfortable, or have a caregiver who is comfortable, using an application on a smartphone

If you are interested, additional eligibility criteria will be assessed by the study doctor or staff.

If you are found eligible to participate in this clinical research study, you will receive an investigational vaccine and complete a minimum of 8 study visits, some in person and some remote via telephone.

The commitment for the study is approximately 3 years.

Qualified participants may receive the investigational vaccine and some study-required medical care at no cost. The study will not pay for other medical care or current medication(s) needed to support your daily health care routine.
