Medical trial looking at yeast infection treatment in Region 8

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A new women's clinical medical trial looking at a new medication for the treatment of yeast infections is underway in Region 8.

Dr. Mark Stripling is the study director at NEA Baptist Clinic and said while there are treatments available, the big problem women face is recurrent infections.

“This particular medication in preliminary studies has some hope for being very effective in treating the patient with recurrent yeast infections,” Dr. Stripling said.

He said they are looking for patients to participate in the study that are between the ages of 18 and 65 and have a history of having 2 previous infections within the last 12 months.

The study will take place over a 48-week period.

If you are interested in learning more, call the NEA Clinic's Research Department at (870) 934-5210.
