Giant Cell Arteritis

We are currently recruiting for a study for Giant Cell Arteritis

Giant cell arteritis is an inflammation of the lining of your arteries. Most often, it affects the arteries in your head, especially those in your temples. For this reason, giant cell arteritis is sometimes called temporal arteritis.

 

Symptoms include headaches and blurred or double vision. Prompt treatment is required to reduce the risk of serious complications including stroke, blindness and abdominal aortic aneurysm

If you, or somebody you know, are interested in taking part in a clinical trial, register here to receive updates and our CGM Research Trust newsletter, call us on 03 365 6777, or contact us.

Have you been diagnosed with Giant Cell Arteritis (Temporal Arteritis)?

Are you at least 50 years of age?

Is your Giant cell Arteritis (GCA) either a new diagnosis or relapsing ie: back on steroids, an increase in steroid dose or return of symptoms?

Are you currently on steroids?

If you have answered YES to the questions above, you may be eligible to be part of a new trial being held in Christchurch.​
