MacDonald Women’s Hospital Research Opportunity

UH MacDonald Women’s Hospital is recruiting subjects for an Endometriosis Pain study.
If you are living with moderate to severe endometriosis-associated pain and have had a surgical
diagnosis of endometriosis within the last 10 years, consider participating in the Equinox Study,
a clinical research study of an oral investigational medication, to see if it may reduce moderate
to severe endometriosis-associated pain. Eligible volunteers will receive study-related medical
evaluations and care at no cost. You may receive compensation for your time and travel.

You may qualify if you:

    • Are a premenopausal woman between the ages of 18 and 49
    • Have had a surgical diagnosis of endometriosis within the last 10 years
    • Have moderate to severe endometriosis-associated pain
    • Are not pregnant or actively trying to get pregnant
    • Do not have osteoporosis (thinning, weak bones) or any other bone disease
    • There are other requirements for the study that the study doctor will discuss
      with you to determine if you are eligible to participate.

If eligible, you will receive study medications for 24 months, after which you will enter a 12
month follow-up period. After the screening period, the study visits are once a month during
the treatment period and consist of a combination of clinic and phone visits; there are 3 clinic
visits during the 12 month follow-up period.
