Seeking Relief from Bladder Pain & Discomfort?

We are conducting Clinical Trials for Interstitial Cystitis in Michigan! Participate Today!

Bladder Pain Syndrome (BPS), also known as interstitial cystitis (IC), is a chronic condition characterized by recurring and often debilitating pelvic pain, pressure, or discomfort. Common symptoms of bladder pain syndrome include frequent and urgent urination, chronic pain during urination, and pain in the lower abdomen. The pain can vary in intensity and may worsen as the bladder fills with urine. The condition can significantly impact a person’s quality of life, leading to sleep disturbances, anxiety, and depression.

About the Clinical Trials for Interstitial Cystitis in Michigan

Bladder pain and discomfort can be a distressing and disruptive condition that affects about 2.7% to 6.5% of women in the United States. We are conducting Clinical Trials for Interstitial Cystitis in Michigan to evaluate the safety and efficacy of an oral drug in women (18 to 70 years old) experiencing pain or discomfort. Participants in this Interstitial Cystitis/Bladder Pain Syndrome Research Study will be given a study treatment as an adjuvant to standard treatment if they have not responded to their current therapy regime.

The study drug will be administered to approximately 150 women. Bladder pain syndrome clinical trials will be conducted in a number of locations across the United States, including Michigan.

The study treatment for participants will last 8 weeks. To ensure study eligibility, all participants must comply with all study procedures. We’re looking into the safety and efficacy of an oral study drug used to treat pain and discomfort in women with Interstitial Cystitis/Bladder Pain Syndrome.

*There is no cost to you, your private medical insurance, or the public health insurance plan for study procedures. The study drug, related procedures, and visits will be provided at no charge for the duration of the study.
