Podiatry is recognized by pharmaceutical companies as an excellent investigational arena for many medications and medical devices to improve foot health. Ashton Podiatry has participated in more than a dozen clinical trials over the past 20 years. They have included such things as post-operative pain management, fungal nail treatments, diabetic wound treatment, and plantar fasciitis. Many national pharmaceutical companies contact us to participate in clinical trials because of our outstanding dedication to the success of each study.
Most studies provide compensation for the patient’s time during study participation. There is no cost to the patient or the patient’s insurance carrier for supplies or procedures related to the study.
We are currently conducting a research trial for a new oral anti-fungal medication. We have already completed enrollment for this study. We anticipate that we will begin enrolling for a new trial for a topical anti-fungal in the first quarter of 2016. If you are interested in being contacted when we begin enrolling for this new study, please use the REQUEST AN APPOINTMENT button to the left to let us know. We would love to put you on our list of prospective study participants.
We will continue to update this page regarding enrollment for our future studies. You may also contact our Study Coordinator, Tamica Martinez, at 214-691-0760, for additional information.
