Infertility Clinical Trials
Through participation in various clinical trials, the physicians and scientists at Shady Grove Fertility continually strive to be at the forefront of research and technology—to advance medical knowledge and improve patient care. Clinical trials are research studies that investigate whether a medical strategy or treatment approach is safe and effective. They also provide invaluable insights into which strategies and treatments work best. At Shady Grove Fertility, we follow strict scientific protocols to ensure patient safety and help produce reliable study results.
We encourage our patients to learn more about our ongoing trials, as they offer unique advantages, including, in some cases, free or discounted access to new treatments before they’re widely available. If you choose to participate in a clinical trial, you may receive the new approach being tested. At Shady Grove Fertility, as always, you will have the support of your physician and health care team.
ACTIVE Clinical Trials AND RESEARCH STUDIES
SUSTAIN Research Study
Shady Grove Fertility is conducting the SUSTAIN research study to evaluate vaginal progesterone for frozen embryo transfer (FET). Patients with an upcoming FET may be eligible to participate in this study.
For information regarding enrolling in the SUSTAIN study for your upcoming FET, speak with your nurse or doctor.
Celmatix Research Study
Shady Grove Fertility is participating in a Celmatix research study to help us better understand the genetic behind both fertility potential and infertility. Any woman between the ages of 18-45 is eligible to participate, including those who are seeking help conceiving and/or those seeking to freeze their eggs. Study participants will be asked to donate blood during a routine blood draw and allow researchers to review relevant medical information. Researchers will use this information to help discover genetic factors associated with a woman's fertility.
For information regarding enrolling in the Celmatix study, speak with your nurse or doctor.
Reproductive Window Study
Are you female between the ages of 18 to 40? Have you had a cancer diagnosis and cancer treatment? If so, the Reproductive Window Study needs you! The research team at Shady Grove Fertility, in collaboration with the researchers at UC San Diego, want to know how cancer treatment affects the reproductive health of young adult female cancer survivors. Participants will be followed for 18 months and asked to complete study activities at FOUR specific time points. Participants will receive a $10 gift card after completing each study activity.
