Monmouth Cardiology Associates is currently seeking volunteers for participation in research trials in the following areas
Hypertriglyceridemia is a condition to which triglyceride levels are elevated, which is a common disorder in the United States. Elevated triglycerides are associated with increased risk of cardiovascular events as well as acute pancreatitis. There is a link between fish oil consumption and the reduced incidence of coronary heart disease and there is extensive evidence showing that regular intake of omega-3 fatty acids exerts cardioprotective effects in both primary and secondary coronary heart disease prevention.
A study of the investigational use of a highly purified ethyl-EPA medication is in progress. You may qualify if you have triglyceride levels greater than 200mg/dL, despite optimal statin therapy. All study related care and study related medication will be provided at no cost as well as study patients will be paid a stipend for their time each visit.
Principal Investigator: Dr John Checton, MD, FACC, FCCP - Call Kristin Timpy, BSN, RN at 732-807-2170.
If you are recently diagnosed (within 3 months) with atrial fibrillation, an irregular and often rapid heart rate that commonly causes poor blood flow to the body, you may qualify to participate in a global registry regarding long-term oral anti-thrombotic (Coumadin, Pradaxa, Eliquis, etc.) treatment. This program is a large, international, observational study; therefore, study patients will receive standard of care treatment, not study medication. The importance of the registry is to help increase the medical community's knowledge on atrial fibrillation patients, the various treatment patterns, and outcome events in a real-world setting.
Study patients will be paid a stipend for their time and research visits, outside of standard of care office visits, are not required.
Principle Investigator: Dr. Steven Zukerman, MD, FACC - Call Kristin Timpy, BSN, RN at 732-807-2170
To learn more about these pivotal trials and see if you qualify, speak with your MCA physician at your next visit or call Kristin Timpy, BSN, RN at 732-807-2170.
