MOTION SICKNESS

Motion sickness is a common condition affecting about 30% of the population. Common symptoms of motion sickness include nausea, vomiting, stomach awareness, pallor, headache, sweating, dizziness, a sensation of warmth and drowsiness. The purpose of the study is to evaluate the effectiveness of an investigational drug on symptoms associated with motion sickness and to assess the safety of the investigational drug.

DELAYED SLEEP WAKE-PHASE DISORDER

Delayed sleep–wake phase disorder (DSWPD) is a chronic dysregulation of a person's circadian rhythm (biological clock), compared to those of the general population and societal norms.  People with DSWPD generally fall asleep some hours after midnight and have difficulty waking up in the morning. However, they find it very difficult to wake up in time for a typical school or work day. If they are allowed to follow their own schedules, e.g. sleeping from 4:00 am to 1:00 pm, their sleep is improved and they may not experience excessive daytime sleepiness. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of an investigational medication compared to placebo for this condition.

NARCOLEPSY

Narcolepsy is a neurological disorder that affects an individual's control of sleep and wakefulness. People with narcolepsy experience excessive daytime sleepiness and intermittent, uncontrollable episodes of falling asleep during the daytime. The purpose of this study is to learn how well the study drug works and how safe the study drug is compared with a placebo in treating narcolepsy with cataplexy or narcolepsy without cataplexy.

WHAT TO EXPECT

A clinical trial is scientific research designed to test if a medication or medical device is effective and well-tolerated for use by people.

PRE-SCREEN

First, a phone conversation is performed between the study volunteer and a member of the research staff to determine if the volunteer would be a good fit for the study.

SCREENING VISIT

Following pre-screen eligibility, the study volunteer visits the clinic to learn the details of the study that are outlined in the Informed Consent Form and begins participation in the study.

RANDOMIZATION VISIT

After successfully enrolling in the study, the study volunteer is randomized into a study treatment group either consisting of placebo or the investigational product. 

STUDY VISITS

Every study has its own established number of clinic visits, phone call visits, and/or at-home visits which are performed throughout the duration of the study. These visits may include lab draws, questionnaires, or exams depending on the study protocol.

POST-TREATMENT FOLLOW UP

After successful completion of the clinical trial, the study volunteer will either visit the clinic or have a phone call visit to record any changes in the participant's health.
