Current Studies

Volunteer to make a difference

Diablo Clinical Research is currently enrolling a number of studies across a wide range of health conditions. If you don’t see a study that is right for you, complete our online form, and let us know what areas of research you are interested in and we will put you on a list to contact when that study becomes available.

Type 1 Diabetes

Endocrinology is a main area of study for Diablo Clinical Research. We conduct studies of both new and approved therapies for Type 1 diabetes. We also conduct research with the latest in diabetes glucose monitoring devices, including continuous glucose monitoring, meter studies and artificial pancreas studies.


Type 2 Diabetes

Endocrinology is a main area of study for Diablo Clinical Research. We conduct studies of both new and approved therapies for Type 2 diabetes. Our studies focus on blood sugar control, pain relief of diabetic neuropathy, and other complications including kidney disease, high blood pressure, and metabolic syndrome.


Diabetes Device Studies

We are working on studies that are helping to bring innovative devices to people with diabetes. The types of studies we conduct are for both Type 1 and Type 2. We are looking at improvements in managing blood glucose through Blood Glucose Meter (BGM) studies, Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) studies, Artificial Pancreas (AP) studies, Insulin Delivery Systems studies and Non-invasive Blood glucose monitoring studies.  Some of these studies are simple, 1-visit studies and others involve extended/overnight stays in our facility. 



Most everyone has suffered from a headache at one time or another, but a migraine is different. It is a debilitating collection of neurological symptoms that usually includes a severe recurring intense throbbing pain on one side of the head (although in 1/3 of migraine attacks, both sides are affected). Attacks last between 4 and 72 hours and are often accompanied by one or more of the following: visual disturbances, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, extreme sensitivity to sound, light, touch and smell, and tingling or numbness in the extremities or face.


Vaccine Studies

The creation of a vaccine involves scientists and medical experts from around the world, and it usually requires 10 to 15 years of research before the vaccine is made available to the general public. The purpose of vaccination is to produce immunity. Immunity means the presence in a person’s body of cells and substances known as antibodies that can produce a protective immune response. Vaccines are like a training course for the immune system. They prepare the body to fight disease without exposing it to disease symptoms. 


Healthy Volunteers

Research studies enroll a wide variety of people. When we think of clinical research, we most often think of studies that are seeking patients who have a specific condition. Not all studies target a specific disease; we have many studies for healthy volunteers. Healthy volunteers are important to the data collected. A healthy volunteer study may be looking at how a healthy person responds to the procedures or how a healthy person’s information can be used as a comparison to those people with the condition. 


Celiac Disease

Celiac disease is a genetic, autoimmune condition in which eating gluten (a protein found in wheat, rye and barley) causes damage to the small intestine. Researchers around the world are working to develop new treatments for celiac disease beyond the gluten-free diet. As a person affected by celiac disease, you can play an important role in advancing research by participating in a clinical trial. The biggest obstacle in getting a celiac drug to market is recruiting enough patients to participate in clinical studies. 


Weight Loss

Weight loss studies typicall involve investigating various strategies, interventions, and factors that contribute to or inhibit weight loss in individuals.  These studies may examine the effectiveness of different diets, exercise regimens, behavioral interventions, medications, or surgical procedures in helping people lose weight.  The studies often measure outcomes such as changes in body weight, body composition, metabolic markers, and overall health to assess the impact of interventions.  Additionally, weight loss studies may explore the psychological, social, and environmental factors influencing individuals' ability to achieve and maintain weight loss.  the types of studies we are doing in this area currently are focused on the class of medications called Glucagon Like Peptide (GLP-1s).

Why Clinical Research?

Clinical research is medical research that involves people. It has led to the discovery of every disease treatment prescribed today and study volunteers play a critical role in this process.

Clinical research may be right for you if you want to learn more about your condition and what new treatments are being studied, you want to help others – including future family members who may be at risk for certain diseases, and/or you’d like to receive regular monitoring by medical professionals.
