University of Minnesota doing therapy and medication clinical trials

Some new clinical trials have been added to the F.E.A.S.T. Clinical Trials page:
Eating Disorder Clinical Trials currently recruiting or in progress

Do you struggle with binge eating and purging? Is your sense of self-esteem strongly influenced by your body shape and/or weight? The Eating Disorders Research Program is testing a new type of therapy for the treatment of bulimic symptoms. Individuals ages 18-65 who are interested in learning more about this University of Minnesota research opportunity and  determining eligibility should email or call: 612-627-1991  (all calls confidential).
The University of Minnesota Eating Disorders Research Program is looking for adult men and women who regularly binge eat (i.e., eat large amounts of food in a short period of time and feel a loss of control) to serve as participants for a study testing a new medication for binge eating disorder. Interested individuals will go through a screening process to determine eligibility. Those eligible will be randomly selected to receive
the study medication or placebo pill (an inactive pill) and take the medication daily for 6 weeks. In addition, participants will attend several monitoring visits which last about 1 hour each. Finally, participants will complete one follow-up visit which would occur 2 months after starting the medication. Participants are paid $40 for each study visit they complete. If you are overweight/obese and not taking any mood-altering medications
(e.g., antidepressants), please contact us for more information: 612-627-1991 or
