ENROLL IN THE NEUROGENIC ORTHOSTATIC HYPTOTENSION RESEARCH STUDY
About the Study
If you, or a loved one, are suffering from neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (nOH), there is hope. Medical and non-profit organizations are working tirelessly to find treatments and a cure. Part of the process of discovering effective treatments for neurogenic orthostatic hypotension are clinical trials. These research studies and clinical trials are separated into phases, and are offered to patients with neurogenic orthostatic hypotension after pre-clinical trials and early phase studies are completed.
A neurogenic orthostatic hypotension clinical trial offers patients the opportunity to receive care from some of the nation’s leading neurologists, and includes treatment and continued monitoring at no cost to the patient, with expenses for time and travel potentially reimbursed as well.
The Neurological Research Center at the Fort Wayne Neurological Center is currently enrolling for a clinical study to assess the effectiveness of a new treatment option for patients with neurogenic orthostatic hypotension.
If you are currently suffering from nOH, please review the following qualifications and submit a form below to find out if you qualify for this study. To learn more about participating in a study at the neurological research center read our patient FAQ page or contact us with additional questions.

Resources for Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension Patients
We know that a neurogenic orthostatic hypotension diagnosis is a challenging prospect to face. We’re here to help. We want to provide you with every available resource to equip and help you on your health journey. We’ve created a list of organizations that are actively working to find answers, provide information, discover new treatments, and who are relentlessly advocating on your behalf.
NOH Matters is an organization that is raising awareness for neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (nOH). Their website contains a breadth of information on signs and symptoms to potential treatment options.
Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is a non-profit coalition committed to improving the quality of life for people experiencing MSA, neurogenic orthostatic hypotension included. They build awareness, raise funds for research, and offer community for people affected by MSA.
NORD exists to provide information and data on rare diseases. Neurogenic orthostatic hypotension is included in their database and they offer extensive information with links to supporting organizations and medical publications for this disease.
Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension (nOH) is often found in patients with Parkinson’s disease. If you, or a loved one, are suffering from Parkinson’s disease, this organization is an incredible resource containing everything from detailed information on Parkinson’s Disease to connecting you to local resources in your area.
