JBR Clinical Research is conducting a clinical research study of an investigational pneumococcal vaccine.

Why participate in a clinical research study?

Clinical studies are what allow all medications to come to market, including drugs that treat pain, infections, and various medical conditions. Without clinical studies, no medications would be available for use and they are only possible with the help of participants like you. Compensation varies by study and time involved, and whether you complete all visits and procedures in the study. Every volunteer study at JBR Clinical Research is approved and monitored by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to make sure the risks are as low as possible and are worth any potential benefits to the volunteer.

What to expect.

Patients that qualify for the study, may receive no cost investigational pneumococcal vaccine and study related care by our board-certified pediatrician. There are 2 visits and one phone call over a 30-day time period. Participants will receive $200 compensation for time and travel associated with the study.

Space in the pediatric investigational pneumococcal vaccine study is limited. In order to be considered for the study, please fill out and submit your information on the form.

What is Pneumococcal Pneumonia?

Pneumococcal pneumonia is an infectious, potentially serious bacterial lung disease you can catch anytime, anywhere. In severe cases, it can put you in the hospital and even be life-threatening. Pneumococcal pneumonia can be passed from person to person.

Pneumococcal pneumonia is caused by bacteria, not a virus. The bacteria that cause pneumococcal pneumonia are called Streptococcus pneumoniae. These bacteria can spread from person to person through coughing or close contact.

What are the Symptoms?

Symptoms of pneumococcal pneumonia may include:

  • fever.
  • chills and shaking.
  • chest pain when breathing in or out.
  • shortness of breath.
  • cough.
  • drowsiness (excessive sleepiness) or confusion are common symptoms in the elderly.
