I put my name down for another one of these fuckers in October.

This is another inhaler one testing a new inhaler with an already-on-the-market medication for cystic fibrosis.

The payment is 1068, and this is for a 2 night stay. I repeat, a TWO night stay.

I once did one for 28 less than this, 1040, and that was for an 8 night stay.

As usual, just having my name down means nothing as yet. I'll screen for it and should get through but there's never a guarantee that you'll get on it as any small thing can happen to fuck it up.

However if I do get a place, this will most certainly be the best paid trial I've done yet. Fucking 534 per night. And for only 10 blood draws.

Are you registered with a system to prevent people over-volunteering? Because if so then 1000 isn't bad, but it might put you out of trial action for 3/12 and so it's sometimes worth waiting for a bigger paycheck.

I work in the pharmaceutical industry, and have met people who used to travel around Europe doing phase 1 trials. At one point in London there was an insane premium for Japanese volunteers, as metabolism in Japanese people can be quite different.

Hope the screening goes well.

There's two groups for this current study. I tried for the first one but screening was due to be on the 15th of September. My last dose on the last trial was on the 16th of June, which is 1 day less than three months. For this reason they couldn't let me in to the first group.

So yeah, they automatically check the system for over-volunteering, and even one stupid day can write you off.

I've had periods where little things would go tits up and put you out of a study, or the pharmaceutical company pulled the medication, or any number of stupid little things that could go wrong. So you just kinda take any half decent and safe sounding one you can, as even then it's never guaranteed until you're walking out the door on the final day. So there's no point in waiting for bigger "pay days". And anyway, the ones you get for the 4000 mark mean being in the clinic for like a month. Fuck that.

Got a call this morning informing me that my Total C02 levels were slightly higher than the client wants.

The threshold is between 20 and 31. Mine was at 33 they say... Whatever the fuck it means.

So on Monday at 9am I must attend for a recheck. I might get on and I might not. If I don't I'll get 117 consolation prize and possibly an automatic place on the next trial.

Obviously it would suck not to get on it at the last hurdle but this is the kind of thing that can happen in medical trials. The margin for error (safety) is very thin, but that is actually a good thing because at least they're taking full precautions regarding the health of us human guinea pigs. Even if we're not.

The blood re-check came back fine. So I'm good to go.

The trial is almost done, so that's another 1000 in the bank.

It wasn't so easy to get on this one. The criteria was so narrow that one of the lads that checked in with us on Monday got dropped 2 hours later after an ECG wasn't acceptable.

He was quite a dick about it. He walked back in tearing off his medical wrist band and throwing it on the floor. Then packed up his stuff and stormed out not saying bye to any of the lads and slamming doors.

Which was quite OTT. Twat.

Signed up for another one of these today.

If all goes well it would be a 2 week stay in return for 3600, the biggest payout I'll have ever had for one of these.

Really hope I get on to it, could be doing with that decent chunk of dollas.

I'll have to use almost all my remaining annual leave, but it'll be worth it if it goes to plan.
