    Inflammatory and Immune System

    Arthritis

    Many symptoms of arthritis are characterized by pain, stiffness, and swelling of the joints. There are different types of arthritis and while most can cause severe joint damage over time, others can affect organs, skin, and eyes. Omega Research offers trials for the following types of arthritis: Ankylosing Spondylitis, Gout, Osteoarthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, and Rheumatoid Arthritis.

    Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease that results in pain, swelling, stiffness, and the lost of function in your joints. It is common in the wrist and fingers. Autoimmune diseases are characterized by the immune system attacking the body’s own tissues.

    HIV

    There are more than 200,000 new cases of Human Immunodificiency Virus or HIV diagnosed each year. HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. Common symptoms include fever, sore throat, and fatigure. Although there is no cure available for HIV, there is treatment available to help.

    Sjogren's Syndrome

    Sjögren's Syndrome is an autoimmune disease that attacks the glands that produce tears and saliva. Common side effects are dry mouth, dry eyes, and overall dryness of mucus membranes and skin. Additional side effects may affects joints, internal organs, nerves and blood vessels. Sjögren's Syndrome is common among women over 40 and can be linked to lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.

    Lupus

    Lupus is an autoimmune disease and can affect many parts of the body. Symptoms are many and include: pain/swelling of joints, muscle pain, fever, hair loss, and sensitivity to sun, swelling in legs, swollen glands, and fatigue. Symptoms come in the form of flares and can range from mild to sever. These studies are for patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE).


    Metabolic and Endocrine

    High Cholesterol

    Having a high amount of cholesterol in your blood can be influenced by genetics (unchangeable inherited traits) or by diet.

    Type II Diabetes Mellitus

    Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus is characterized by inadequate glycemic control (high blood sugar). Specifically, patients with Type 2 Diabetes do not produce or use insulin well.

    Hepatic Function

    Hepatic Function Tests refer to those that test blood to measure liver function. Liver function tests measure proteins, enzymes, and other substances found in the blood.


    Musculoskeletal

    Osteoarthritis

    Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and commonly affects the hands, knees, hips and spine. Osteoarthritis affects the joints by breaking down the cartilage. Cartilage is the tissue that absorbs shock between the ends of the bones and joint.

    Ankylosing Spondylitis

    Ankylosing Spondylitis is often characterized by chronic pain and inflammation of the joints in the spine. Symptoms of AS include back pain and stiffness. Ankylosing Spondylitis is also known as Bechterew's disease.

    Gout

    Gout is a form of arthritis that results as a build up of uric acid in the body. Uric acid is naturally occurring in the body and typically passes through the body through urine. Gout typically attacks heels, ankles, wrists, elbows, and fingers, but may also produce kidney stones.

    Polymyositis

    Polymyositis is a muscle disease that is characterized by muscle inflammation and weakness. This condition affects skeletal muscles and can affect mobility over time. Common side effects outside of muscle inflammation and weakness are shortness of breath, difficult swallowing or speaking, and heart arrhythmias.


    Neurological

    Alzheimer's Disease

    Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and eventually the ability to carry out the simplest tasks. In most people with Alzheimer’s, symptoms first appear in their mid-60s.

    Depression

    Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects more than 19 million people in the US alone.


    Gastrointestinal

    Clostridium Difficile (c. diff)

    Clostridium Difficile (C-Diff) is a bacterium that causes diarrhea and more severe conditions such as colitis. Additional symptoms include fever, loss of appetite, nausea, and abdominal pain.

    Irritible Bowel Syndrome

    Symptoms may include abdominal pain, constipation, and diarrhea. This disorder is common; about 50 percent of all gastrointestinal problems are associated with Irritable Bowel Syndrome.


    Kidney / Renal

    Lupus Nephritis

    Lupus Nephritis is a kidney disorder that results as a complication from systemic lupus erythematosus. Symptoms include blood in urine, high blood pressure, foamy appearance of urine, and general swelling.

    Renal Function

    Renal function tests refer to those that measure kidney function. Tests vary and can evaluate blood, urine, and ultrasound imaging.

    Diabetic Kidney Disease (DKD)

    Diabetic kidney disease is damage to the kidneys as a result of diabetes. Diabetes is a disease where your blood glucose (blood sugar) levels are too high. Kidney damage from diabetes is also known as diabetic neuropathy.

    Overactive Bladder

    Overactive bladder symptoms include urinating at the wrong time, frequent urination, and/or the loss of bladder control. These studies are for older adult patients with overactive bladder.


    Reproductive and Women's Health

    Uterine Fibroids

    Uterine fibroids are tumors that grow in a woman's womb (uterus). These growths are typically not cancerous (benign).

    Endometriosis

    Endometriosis is a disorder in which the tissue that forms the lining of your uterus grows outside of your uterine cavity. It can cause very heavy bleeding and painful cramps.


    Men's Health

    Low Testosterone

    Testosterone is the main male hormone. It supports normal male traits such as muscle growth, facial hair, and deep voice. This skin patch is used in males to treat low testosterone levels.

    Prostate Issues, like BPH

    Benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH) is a condition that causes your prostate gland to grow larger than normal. The prostate gland is the male sex gland that produces a fluid that is part of semen.


    Respiratory

    Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

    Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is a lung disease that causes difficulty breathing and is typically caused by smoking. Chronic bronchitis and emphysema are the two conditions associated with COPD and most people have a combination of both conditions.

    Asthma

    Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the lungs. It makes breathing difficult and brings on attacks of coughing, wheezing, tightness in the chest and shortness of breath.

    Chronic Bronchitis

    Chronic bronchitis, which is a form of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), is an ongoing inflammation of the airways leading to the lungs (bronchi). It is characterized by a cough, mucus production, shortness of breath, and wheezing that persist for longer than three months.

    Community Acquired Pneumonia (CAP)

    Pneumonia is a respiratory condition caused by lung infection. Community-Acquired Pneumonia refers to the occurrence of pneumonia in people who have not recently been in a healthcare facility, hospital, or rehabilitation center. Symptoms include fever, chills, shortness of breath, cough with mucus, headache, and fatigue.


    Skin

    Psoriatic Arthritis

    Psoriatic Arthritis is a type of arthritis that affects people with Psoriasis. Psoriasis is a skin disease that may cause itchy, scaly, or sore patches of skin. Psoriatic Arthritis can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling of the joints and may or may not happen at the same time as a psoriatic outbreak.

    Systemic Sclerosis

    Systemic Sclerosis is a group of diseases that result in abnormal growth of connective tissues. Over time, these tissues become thick and can harden. Common side effects are calcium deposits in connective tissues, thickening of skin on fingers, red spots on the hands and face, swelling of the esophagus, and/or Raynaud’s phenomenon. Systemic Sclerosis may also be referred to as Scleroderma, Dermatosclerosis, Morphea, and Circumscribed Scleroderma.

    Dermatomyositis

    Dermatomyositis is a muscle disease that is characterized by muscle inflammation and weakness. Symptoms include rashes with red or purple discoloration on skins and joints, difficulty straightening joints, light sensitivity, and inflamed lungs.
