The Research Institute at Lindner Center of HOPE Seeks Patients Struggling With Binge Eating Disorder to Participate in Medication Trial
Study May Provide Information About the Safety and Effectiveness of an Investigational Medication
Individuals struggling with binge eating disorder (B.E.D.) feel that their repetitive overeating is out of control. They may feel embarrassed and guilty after eating an excessive amount of food in a set period of time. This is a disorder and not a decision, yet sufferers often can feel shame.
B.E.D. can have a significant impact on people who are suffering. Research and evaluation of investigational medications could lead to treatments that may reduce suffering.
Those diagnosed with B.E.D. may be eligible for a medical research study. Researchers at Lindner Center of HOPE are currently conducting a medical research study evaluating an investigational medication in adults with B.E.D. In this study, the safety and effectiveness of the investigational medication will be evaluated when it is taken daily for 12 weeks.
Those interested in participating in the study must:
- Be 18 to 55 years of age.
- Regularly engage in overeating (binge eating) episodes Study-related tests and investigational medication will be provided to eligible participants at no cost. In addition, reimbursement for travel and related expenses may be provided for completed study visits.
