West Bend, WI – Spaulding Clinical in West Bend has an easy way for people who may have lost their job to make money.
Cassie Erato is CEO for the Phase 1 pharmaceutical testing firm. “We really have a good message for our community,” said Erato.
Spaulding Clinical currently has 12 studies available that are paying extremely high stipends.
“Because of COVID-19 it is more difficult to recruit right now,” said Erato. “We have an abundance of trials to choose from and everyone is increasing their stipends. So, the amount our clients are paying per day is very high, even though the risk is no greater.”
A sampling of what the stipends are like:
– One study, KALAHARI, is 20 days and it pays $7,500.
– There is a sunscreen trial that is 5 nights, sunscreen is applied and there are blood draws and it pays $3,200.
– Another study, UNICORN, is 7 nights and 9 outpatient visits. It pays $6,800 and that is for an FDA approved drug for high cholesterol.
“People in the community can really benefit from clinical trials, especially if maybe their restaurant job shut down; people are turning to clinical trials for income,” said Erato. “We are providing so much in stipends right now; we’re sending hundreds of thousands of dollars out each week.”
“We have this abundance of trials to choose from, all for healthy volunteers. You can take your pick from a quick, short stay or five days and being able to work around your work schedule,” she said.
