As it stands, pneumonia and influenza are the eighth leading cause of death in the United States, but studies show that pneumonia is consistently the more deadly of the two. This infection is difficult to control due to the number of factors which can cause it, including:
- Specific organisms
Despite the research conducted on pneumonia, the best course of action is still early vaccination. Brand new clinical trials like the one being conducted at Birmingham, AL will help ensure ongoing effectiveness in the fight against this potentially life-threatening medical condition.
Why Are Volunteers Needed?
Pneumonia remains widespread throughout many third-world countries, and there are plenty of people at risk for this infection here as well. While each case isn’t deadly, there is still a lack of effective treatments for certain types of pneumonia. The vaccinations that save millions of lives every year would not be possible if it were not for clinical trials like the ones conducted at Achieve in Birmingham, AL.
Clinical volunteers help ensure the success of new clinical research studies, which in turn help ensure that the pneumonia vaccine continues to be improved upon. It’s also vitally important that researchers continue to invest time into improving vaccinations like these because there are such a broad range of organisms which can cause pneumonia.
Each clinical trial has a set of specific inclusion/exclusion criteria which are established by the study protocol. They will vary depending on the type of trial being conducted and the therapeutic focus of the research. People who don’t meet these criteria will not be eligible for enrollment in a clinical trial. It’s a crucial step that helps ensure the future success of the research study.
