Diabetic Neuropathy Cream for growth of Nerves

Sponsored by Winsantor, The University of Alberta and other research institutes are conducting a randomized outpatient, double-blind, placebo-controlled, multiple-site study of the safety, tolerability, and exploratory efficacy of topically administered WST-057 (4% pirenzepine free base monohydrate) for 24 weeks in subjects with T2DM with peripheral neuropathy.  Inclusion criteria include: diagnosis of T2DM; age rage 18-75 years, and presence of definite diabetic neuropathy of at least 12 months duration in the lower extremities.  Recruitment for this trial is complete.

Research Participants From Calgary, AB are needed

If you are local to Calgary AB and area, and you have lumbar spinal stenosis or diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Mount Royal U is looking for you.

They are working, together with the U of C, on a study for an accelerator sensor to differentially diagnose these two conditions. If this sensor is successful (and the data it looks promising), it will help physicians diagnose these neuropathies faster and with more accuracy.

Research Study Databases

There are thousands of research studies going on around the world. Below are some of the databases to help you find research studies of interest to you. You do not need to restrict yourself to neuropathy when searching. If you have an underlying condition, such as CMT or Diabetes, include that in your search criteria in the database.
