Clinical research studies

We currently support a number of clinical research studies, including:

  • ALIFE 2 – Low-molecular-weight heparin to increase the chance of live birth in women with recurrent miscarriage and inherited thrombophilia
  • Couples having IVF treatment – The generation of human embryonic stem cells for clinical use and Sperm, Egg and Embryo Research
  • DETECT – DEveloping Tests for Endometrial Cancer detection

  • NEST study – Clinical Evaluation of Daily Application of Nestorone® (NES) and Testosterone (T) Combination Gel for Male Contraception
  • Pelvic Vein Study – a randomised controlled trial that tries to understand if the reason of chronic pelvic pain in women is the incompetence of the Pelvic Vein and explores ways of treating the Incompetent Vein if this is observed in the participants
  • PROTECTOR – Preventing ovarian cancer through early excision of tubes and late ovarian removal 
  • RoboQol – An Evaluation Of The Impact Of Mode Of Surgery On Patient Centred Outcomes In Gynaecological Cancer
