Frail-LESS: study to help older adults stay independent with everyday activities

READ MORE

The purpose of this study is to test a new remotely delivered programme to reduce sitting time in older adults to help them with doing everyday activities. The study will see whether it is possible to deliver the new programme to reduce sitting time in older adults to improve health and help them stay independent for longer.

We all lose muscle and strength as we get older (this is called sarcopenia) and this can affect how well we can do everyday activities. Reducing the amount of time spent sitting down could help improve older people’s strength, balance, ability to carry out everyday activities (e.g. standing up from a chair, walking and climbing stairs) and help them to maintain their independence for longer. This new programme has been designed to help with this.

PAX-D study: treatment resistant depression

READ MORE

The purpose of this study is to find out if pramipexole is a useful treatment for treatment resistant depression (TRD). A significant proportion of people diagnosed with clinical depression (up to 3 in 10) do not improve with current first-line treatments and are regarded as having TRD. Current medicines for TRD are not particularly effective for many people and often have unwanted effects which may be distressing.

There is some evidence that pramipexole may be an effective treatment for TRD. Pramipexole is unlike current antidepressant drugs in that it acts like a brain chemical called dopamine, which is known to influence people’s motivation to pursue goals and affects how rewarding they find them. This study will require visits to Oxford.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a clinical trial?

A clinical trial is a medical study comparing the effect of different healthcare treatments. They are essential for finding new, safer and more effective treatments for all kinds of health conditions.

Will I be paid for participating in research?

Most trials and studies will cover your travel expenses and other expenses you may incur from participation. Some offer additional compensation. Full details of compensation can be found on the relevant study page.

Who can take part in a clinical trial or study?

Every clinical trial has unique requirements for taking part, called the ‘inclusion’ and ‘exclusion’ criteria. If you don't qualify for one trial you're interested in, you may qualify for another in your area. You can also fill out your profile here to sign up for alerts from Lindus Health when new trials match your profile.

Is it safe to take part in a clinical trial?

Yes. The safety of participants is very important. Before any clinical trial can begin, plans must be approved by medical regulators and ethics committees. All participants in clinical trials are under the care of the trial teams, who must include qualified doctors and clinicians. The care they receive must be at least as good as care received by the general population.

Can I change my mind about taking part?

Yes, you can still leave a clinical trial at any time, for any reason.

How much time does it take to participate in a trial or study?

Time commitment varies across clinical trials. Full details of time commitments are available on the study page, or you can ask the study staff.

What is a control arm or placebo?

A ‘control arm’ or ‘placebo’ is often used to fairly assess how effective a treatment is. In some clinical trials, up to half the participants may receive an existing treatment or a placebo (a dummy treatment). The results of these participants are compared against the participants who had the new treatment. This helps remove bias and fairly assess how well the new treatment works.

What do you do with my data?

We ask for your permission before collecting and storing any of your data, and sharing it with the study teams. All results are completely confidential. For full details, please see our privacy policy. Volunteers for clinical trials and studies are essential to moving healthcare forward. If you're ready to get involved, start searching for a trial that matches you today.
