How to find clinical trials for Myositis

Clinical trials for treatments of Myositis and other diseases is an essential step to finding a cure or more desirable treatments.  A multitude of trials are continually underway worldwide, and there are several ways to find out how to participate, treatments being tested and the locations of the trials.

Here are just a few simple resources to help you locate clinical trials:

  • The largest registry of federally- and privately- supported clinical trials conducted in the United States and more than 100 countries is www.clinicaltrials.gov.
  • The Myositis Association posts trials concerning Inclusion Body Myositis, Polymyositis, and Dermatomyositis.  www.myositis.org.
  • Large medical centers, especially teaching hospitals often conduct clinical trials. The center’s website may have a section about the trials underway.

Campaign for Myositis Awareness Month, May 2017

Purchasing a shirt from this booster will help us, Myositis Support and Understanding, with our many patient support programs, education, financial assistance for patients and upcoming programs.

This year, 2017, Myositis Support and Understanding’s awareness month theme is “Sometimes Zebras have spots!” We want to raise awareness about how the experiences, symptoms, and complications of this rare disease are different, even among the patients with the same disease. Doctors are now trained, when you hear hoof beats, look for zebras (rarities), instead of horses (common ailments); when in the past, they only looked for the most common ailments.
