A Multi-Therapeutic Research Center Performing Clinical Medical Studies,  Phases II Through IV

Research for Answers to Better Health

Founded in 1999 for the Advancement of Medical Science

The founder and current medical director, Andrew W. Garner, MD, CPI has been doing clinical research since 1989. The research center was established for the advancement of medical science in the Adirondack area of Upstate New York. We are a multi-therapeutic research center performing studies in numerous areas of medicine including Phases II through IV.


TACT 2 Trial. Criteria: Subjects 50 years and older with Diabetes Mellitus Type 2, who have had a heart attack.

In the TACT 1 Trial, published in 2013, IV EDTA Chelation therapy was administered to over 1700 patients and was shown to have a statistically significant benefit over placebo at reducing the risk of a second heart attack. Interestingly, patients with Diabetes Mellitus had a 40-50% reduction in the risk of a second heart attack. The National Institute of Health has therefore commissioned a second study called TACT2.*

AZT-001 early-stage Alzheimer’s. Criteria: Subjects with early-stage Alzheimer’s, 55-79 years old.

Treatment using Chromolyn Sodium. This drug was given to mice with Alzheimer’s and found that the treated mice had 50% less amyloid in their brains, which is a problem protein found in the brains
of Alzheimer’s patients.*

Lyme Disease Lab test.

For patients with a classic Lyme Bulls-eye rash. Before subjects have received any treatment we need to draw their blood. Four blood draws over 12 wks.*

Donate your brain for Alzheimer’s Research.

Patients near the end of life can participate in helping to develop a new Alzheimer’s brain imaging type of PET scan. You do NOT have to have Alzheimer’s Disease to participate.*

Colonoscopy/Genetic Marker Study.

Subjects who have had a colonoscopy within the last 90 days can participate in a onetime blood draw only study.*

Mammography/Genetic Marker Study.

Subjects who have had a mammography within the last 90 days can participate in a onetime blood draw only study.*

Osteoarthritis of the knee.

Ultrasound guided injection of growth factors that can help build cartilage. The first disease modifying osteoarthritis medication trial.*

Parkinson’s disease with Dementia.

Subjects with Parkinson’s disease and dementia, Lewey Body Dementia, Progressive Aphasia, Supranuclear Palsy, or Corticobasal Syndrome can participate in a onetime blood draw only study.*

Subjects at risk for Hepatitis B and/or Hepatitis C

can have a onetime blood draw only study.*

*Subjects will receive compensation for their participation.
