Hi, Drew1312,

Good question.

The POIS study is not a clinical trial as our POIS Research Team are not intervening on the illness itself, just measuring the symptoms and what happens in the body around those symptoms. Also, clinicaltrials.gov tends to be for research that is either federally funded (e.g., by the NIH) or for drugs/treatments that are intended to be reviewed by the FDA – not for smaller, independently funded research like ours.

10 years of significant POIS-reduction, treatment consisting of daily (365 days/year) testosterone patches.

TRT must be checked out carefully with your doctor due to fertility, cardiac and other risks.

40+ years of severe 4-days-POIS, married, raised a family, started/ran a business

Example: testing a new drug for POIS treatment.

 I understand, so in our case they are trying to find the cause?
