We need your support

The development of new therapies and vaccines may improve the lives of thousands of people suffering from various medical conditions. These trials would not be possible without the support of our volunteers.

We conduct 2-3 vaccine trials a year and they require both younger and older participants. A vaccine study typically lasts between 6 months to a year (depending on what trial).

Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) Trial

We are currently conducting a clinical trial looking into a potential treatment for a respiratory infection that mainly affects children and the elderly.

What is RSV?

Respiratory Syncytial Virus causes upper and lower respiratory tract illness. Upper respiratory symptoms typically begin within several days of RSV infection. Often, the infection remains in the upper respiratory tract. However, in infants and young children, individuals with weakened immune systems, and older adults, the virus may descend to the lower respiratory tract, leading to wheezing, bronchiolitis and potentially hospitalisation, ventilation, and in rare cases even death. Infections with RSV follow a seasonal pattern, mostly occurring in Australia between the months of March and October.

The first visit will be a screening visit to further determine if you are suitable for this trial.
