A large percentage of medical research gets delayed because researchers cannot get enough patients to participate in clinical trials. It is challenging for researchers to find participants who would qualify, and many patients do not know how to find trials they are willing to join.
FPA’s research initiative will increase the awareness of the facial pain community about relevant studies. Another resource is Antidote, a website that includes a search function, to allow you to find opportunities, and read about upcoming research projects.
On Antidote, you can search ‘trigeminal neuralgia’ or other diagnoses; you can also search for ‘depression’, ‘chronic pain’, or other health issues, symptoms, or diseases.
