If you qualify for this study, you’ll be enrolled and attend our clinic in Newstead, Brisbane, for an initial health check which includes lifestyle questionnaires, current medications, weight, height, medical history, a blood test and hair assessments. After this you will be given a test product to use daily, either taking a capsule orally or applying gel to your scalp for 12 weeks.
You will be one of 160 trial participants, with 80 using one of the active treatments and 80 using a placebo (a harmless, inactive substance), so there’s a 50% possibility you will be provided with an active treatment. However, participants who do not receive an active study product during the treatment phase will be offered a 12-week supply of the active product once their participation in the study has been completed.
No cost to you
There is no cost to be a voluntary participant in this study, all study measurements are paid for by the investigators.
You may be eligible to be reimbursed up to $150 to cover your time and out of pocket expenses, including transport to and from study visits. The reimbursement will be made via direct deposit to your nominated bank account once all study requirements have been met.
Following enrolment and pre-study tests, you’ll be asked to attend our Newstead clinic every 4 weeks for follow-up hair assessments and questionnaires over a 12-week period, with a final interview, repeat questionnaire, hair and blood tests on week 12.
- Initial Visit: Enrolment and baseline assessments (including a blood test)
