Local Head-Injury Patients Sought for Study Investigating Potential Treatment for Daytime Sleepiness
Date:1/12/2010

KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Local patients are being sought for a national clinical research study currently investigating a study medication for people who have had a head injury, concussion or bump on the head and feel sleepy or tired during the day.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, head injury is one of the most common neurologic disorders, affecting around 1.5 million Americans every year. Many people with a past head injury feel sleepy during the day, yet few people know that their sleepiness might be connected to this injury.  People experiencing daytime sleepiness who have had one head injury within the last 10 years are encouraged to contact the clinical research screening center at 1-877-674-6317 or go to www.HeadInjuryResearchStudy.com for more information and where they can take the pre-screening questionnaire to see if they are eligible for the study.

"Currently, there are no treatments for patients who suffer from sleepiness during the day as a result of head injury," according to study investigator Dr. Milton Erman, MD at Avastra Clinical Trials. "Consequently, there is a great need for new medicines to treat this life-changing problem."

The clinical study is specifically designed for adults aged 18 to 65 who have had a head injury, concussion, or bump on the head within the last 10 years and feel sleepy or tired during the day. It will examine different dosage strengths of the study medicine and how patients respond to them. Eligible participants may receive medical care related to the study at no cost and be reimbursed for
