BOSTON, June 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Curavit clinical research, a virtual contract research organization (VCRO), has been selected by a digital therapy company, Therapeutic Swing, to be a virtual site for its pivotal trial of an experimental digital therapy (DTx) for fibromyalgia. Curavit will remotely recruit, screen, consent and enroll Swing’s participants PROSPER-FM randomized clinical trial through United States. Curavit will then manage participants throughout the 12-week clinical trial. By removing physical and geographic barriers to trial participation and execution, Curavit can scale rapidly and improve patient recruitment by at least 10x compared to a traditional trial, thereby accelerating trial execution.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic, debilitating pain that affects more than 10 million Americans. It is characterized by generalized musculoskeletal pain often accompanied by fatigue, sleep disturbances, memory and mood.
