Bipolar Disorder Clinical Trial

Have you been diagnosed with bipolar disorder? Are you suffering from symptoms such as racing thoughts, a lack of focus, high energy or irritability? You may be eligible to participate in a research study at Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital. Participants must be:

  • An adult over the age of 18
  • Diagnosed with bipolar disorder

Why Participate in Clinical Research?

  • Access to new medications — Research participants are often the first to receive promising new medications before they become available to the community.
  • No cost to participate in study — Clinical trials are funded by the pharmaceutical industry; therefore, there is no cost to patients to participate in studies at Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital. Participants receive study-related medical evaluations, lab testing and study medications regardless of whether they have insurance.
  • Possible compensation — Participants may be eligible for compensation related to time and travel expenses.
  • The ability to help others — Participants will have an opportunity to potentially help others and improve treatment for those who suffer from the same illness or condition.

Participation is voluntary and confidential. All of the clinical research studies are governed by U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations and are reviewed and approved by the Sharp Institutional Review Board, which ensures that patients' rights and safety are protected.
