Soapstone Center for Clinical Research, WOW Sponsor

Dr. Malloy

SOAPSTONE CENTER FOR CLINICAL RESEARCH has been in the South DeKalb community for almost ten years. It was the idea of Dr. Tyrone Malloy, board certified in Ob/Gyn that brought this clinical research center to our community. Though most of the clinical trials are in Women’s Health, Soapstone has begun to enroll patients in our clinical areas such as diabetes, hypertension, anemia, incontinence, fibromyalgia, and obesity just to name a few.

SOAPSTONE has been successful in recruiting patients for all of our clinical areas, and has received accolades for having the highest number of compliant patients in the country for some of their trials. Several of the current birth control pills, overactive bladder medications and anemia treatments were actually started at Soapstone.

Soapstone will accept individuals into the studies even if they are not patients of our practice. In fact, a large proportion of our clinical trial patients are from both outside of our practice and from outside the South DeKalb area. All medications and laboratory studies are free and all patients are financially compensated for their time and travel. All data from our studies can be made available to your private physician.

Soapstone makes it possible for those patients who cannot afford health care resources or those who have inadequate insurance an opportunity to acquire both medical and surgical treatments for their illnesses without out of pocket expenses. One of our current exciting studies involves the medical treatment for the elimination of HPV, Human Papilloma Virus, the virus responsible for cervical cancer.

Soapstone has recently established a relationship with a genetic research group in California, who is working on a test to diagnose specific genetic diseases in the fetus from a blood test drawn on the mother during the first trimester of pregnancy. If successful it will eliminate the need for the more invasive procedures of amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling, which is associated with potential risk of injury to the fetus.

Soapstone invites you to visit our website, SoapStoneResearch.com, to see what other studies might interest you or a family member. Check periodically for added studies. Our educational department is available to both speak to groups or individuals about participation in clinical trials, as well as to train people to work in this growing fulfilling field of medical research.
