Medicor brings new diabetes trials to Sudbury every year. In the last ten years we have conducted 18 trials for patients with diabetes. Many of the medications we have tested through clinical trials are now available through physician prescription. If you would like an opportunity to learn more about our new diabetes trials as they come up please register with the Medicor database.

Thanks to new medications and surgical techniques, people are living longer. However, the body we had at 55 will be a very different body than the one we have at 75. Many issues, both genetic and environmental, affect how we age.
The most widespread condition affecting those 65 and older is coronary heart disease, followed by stroke, cancer, pneumonia and the flu. Accidents, especially falls that result in hip fractures, are also unfortunately common in the elderly.
A lot of our elders are coping with at least one of the following conditions, and many are dealing with two or more of the following:
- Heart conditions
- Dementia, including Alzheimer's disease
- Incontinence (urine and stool)
- Breathing problems
- Frequent falls, which can lead to fractures
- Parkinson's disease
- Eye problems (cataracts, glaucoma, Macular Degeneration)
We at Medicor Research are always striving to find research studies that are relevant to Greater Sudbury and beyond. Our aging population dictates that we must find ways of treating and caring for our older patients. If you have a health concern and would like to be involved in research feel free to contact us.
With Cannabis now legalized in Canada both recreationally and medicinally, research into the its effects on various medical conditions is set to take off. Preliminary research suggests that Cannabis and its compounds, primarily THC and CBD, have far reaching medicinal benefits. Some of these benefits include, but are not limited to, reducing nausea and vomiting in patients during chemotherapy, improving the appetite of people with HIV/AIDS, as well as reducing chronic pain, potentially decreasing the need for opiates.
At Medicor Research we are determined to find research studies that are not only relevant and impactful on a local scale, but on a global scale as well. If you would like to be involved in research, feel free to contact us!
