Heroes needed: Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome (CVS)

Hawthorne Effect is seeking Critical Care Nurses, Emergency Room Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, and PA-C to support home visits in specific regions for the Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome clinical trial

About the Cyclic Vomiting Trial

This trial is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled repeated crossover study to evaluate the safety and tolerability of intermittent single doses of the investigational product in the abortive treatment of subjects with Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome. This will evaluate the safety, tolerability, efficacy, pharmacokinetics (PK), and feasibility of episodic administration at home in subjects aged 18-50 during the prodromal and early emetic phase in subjects with moderate to severe cyclical vomiting syndrome. This trial seeks to enroll up to 26 patients across 11 site locations.
