What is happening with UK clinical trials?


Updated 08.09.20

Recruitment for the cannabinoid trial is currently paused. Active patients are still attending Alder Hey for appointments and we are hopeful of recruiting new patients in the coming months.

The Anavex trial is also paused but we will be starting pre-screening calls with potential participants imminently. Watch this space.

Both companies involved in the trials are 100% committed to starting the trials ASAP.

We are continuing to monitor the ongoing situation carefully. As the situation evolves, we will try to provide you with as much information as we can. 

If you are taking part in a trial and have any direct concerns about potential COVID-19 infection, please use the NHS 111 online COVID-19 service.
