Have you been suffering from multiple yeast infections over the past year?
Vaginal yeast infection, also known as vaginal thrush or vulvovaginal candidiasis, is a common fungal infection of the vagina. This infection occurs when there is an overgrowth of yeast in the vagina.
Up to 75% of women will experience this infection at some point in their lives, and approximately 5 – 8% will have recurring episodes. Common symptoms include: itching, burning, inflammation, abnormal vaginal discharge, discomfort and pain. Women who suffer recurring infections may have RecurrentVulvoVaginal Candidiasis also known as RVVC.
Occasional yeast infections can often be treated with antifungal medications, supplied as creams, tablets, or suppositories. However, there are no approved treatments for recurring yeast infections. Doctors are currently conducting a new research study for women suffering from RVVC.
In order to qualify for this clinical research study:
- You must be between the ages of 18 and 64 years old
- You must be experiencing symptoms of a yeast infection, which include:
- Vulvovaginal itching
- Vaginal discharge
- You must have experienced at least 3 yeast infections in the past 12 months (including the current infection)
- You must not be currently using over-the-counter or prescribed medication for your infection
Eligible study participants will receive study-related examinations, lab tests and study medication at no charge. Compensation for travel expenses may also be available.
