Great Lakes Clinical Trials Begins a Trial for Subjects with Uterine Fibroids

Under the direction of our Board-Certified Internist, Dr. Emily Lindner, Great Lakes Clinical Trials has recently initiated a clinical trial for women who are experiencing heavy periods due to Uterine Fibroids.

Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths that develop in the wall of the uterus. The most common symptom of uterine fibroids is heavy bleeding during your period. Other symptoms include:

  • Longer period duration
  • Pain
  • Bloating
  • Pelvic Pressure

Not all women who have been diagnosed with uterine fibroids have symptoms. But if you do have symptoms, you may find them extremely disruptive to your daily life.

For this program, Dr. Lindner is collaborating with Dr. Carol Levi and Dr. Jyothi Thota.  Both areBoard-Certified OB/GYNs, affiliated with Swedish Covenant Hospital.  "We are excited to be working with the team at Swedish Covenant," commented Dr. Lindner.  "The quality clinical care and expertise in the treatment of uterine fibroids, offered by Dr. Levi and Dr. Thota, are a perfect complement to the exceptional research activities provided by my Great Lakes team."
