Gastroparesis is a disorder affecting people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in which the stomach takes too long to empty its contents (delayed gastric emptying). The vagus nerve controls the movement of food through the digestive tract. If the vagus nerve is damaged or stops working, the muscles of the stomach and intestines do not work normally, and the movement of food is slowed or stopped.
Diabetic gastroparesis is a disabling condition with no consistently effective treatment2. Therefore, we need your help to continually develop medicine to help those suffering from diabetic gastroparesis.
If you suffer from diabetic gastroparesis, you may qualify for a research study assessing the safety and efficacy of an investigational treatment for this condition.
Qualified participants will be compensated for time and travel. Study medications and study related care are provided at no cost, without the need for health insurance.
Help us advance medical science and find new treatments for diabetic gastroparesis. Help us ease the pain experienced by those suffering with this condition. Take a moment to volunteer by completing the form below.
A Study Volunteer Specialist will contact you when a study fitting your interest is available.
