Drexel Gynecology Study

Drexel Gynecology is participating in a study for patients with uterine fibroids. The SONATA (Sonography-Guided Transcervical Ablation) Study is being conducted at up to 27 centers in the U.S., Mexico and Europe and is designed to establish the safety and effectiveness of a new, investigational device in reducing heavy menstrual bleeding caused by uterine fibroids. The study is a single-arm trial in which all qualified patients will be treated with the Sonata System, which is an ultrasound-guided radiofrequency ablation device permitting treatment of eligible fibroids via a transcervical approach. Enrollment is expected to close October 2016.

The procedure:

  • Is incisionless
  • Conserves the uterus
  • Does not require general anesthesia
  • Is an outpatient procedure

Patients who may be eligible:

  • Are between 25 and 50 years old
  • Suffer from heavy bleeding associated with uterine fibroids
  • Have no desire to become pregnant in the future

If you have a patient who desires treatment for uterine fibroids or a patient who you suspect has heavy menstrual bleeding related to fibroids, we would be happy to complete a work-up to determine if she is eligible for treatment within this study. This would take place at no cost to the patient. Modest compensation is offered, as participants will be expected to attend multiple appointments and complete menstrual diaries and questionnaires.

Women Needed for Vaginal Infection Research Study

Drexel Vaginitis Center is currently recruiting women who have a vaginal infection for a research study testing new medications. If you have symptoms of a vaginal infection, such as itching, burning, irritation, odor or discharge you may qualify. Participants must (at a minimum):

  • Not be pregnant or nursing a baby
  • Not have used antibiotics or antifungals in the last 14 days
  • Be using an effective form of birth control

The study involves two or three office visits. Eligible women will receive study-related exams and medication as well as compensation for time and travel expenses. Enrollment is expected to close October 31, 2016.
