So my clinic is conducting a clinical trial on permanent use of Doxy (kind of like how some of us are on permanent azithromycin).
Doxy is known for its anti-inflammatory effects in addition to it's antibiotic effects.
Since I am on Lovenox for my blood clot, this open label study has randomized me in the placebo group so I don't have to get as many blood draws.
So last Friday I went in for my initial height, weight, pregnancy test and blood draw. I qualify for the study so today is PFT's (they want to measure pre and post trial and a few in between), more blood draws and I think that's it.
So throughout the trial I won't have much to report obviously on how I feel. But I am pretty excited that I am contributing knowledge to a possible new therapy for CF! Yey!!!!
Oh yes, and Tiger II should be resumed shortly. We finally have a new coordinator who seems competent. Yey!
Anyone else out there doing clinical trials?
