UCONN To Do A Trial For Raynauds

8 posts in this topic

I just got a call from UCONN about Dr Rothfield doing a trial for Raynauds. Because I do not suffer from it I said no but I know that wer have a few from CT here so I wanted to post to let others know about it.

Patty,

I did a search looking for this trial but couldn't find anything. I found trials on Raynaud's involving Rothfield that have been completed, but nothing in the recruitment stage. If you have more information, please send me a private message or email and I'll see if I can get it posted. To date - it hasn't been listed on clinicaltrials.gov.

 

Sounds very interesting.

 

Big Hugs,

I hope you're taking care of yourself.

Warm and Happy to you! Vee

Janey,

I am pretty sure that the nurse that called me said it was a topical ointment clinical trial. Because I only have very very slight raynauds I said no. The nurse said that it was for people with on going trouble from it. I can call UCONN Monday and ask Dr Rothfields dept more about it see if they have it listed anywhere. I was very excited about this even if its not for me, it could help so many people!


Hugs,

Patty
