Is that your best attempt? CoronaAIDS? Admittedly a lot of the good ones, like Kung flu, are already taken but even CoHiV would have been a better choice if you are going in the AIDS direction.

I never gave it much thought, I've just stuck with that one since the beginning, but off the top of my head I've got a new one..

CovAIDS-19

Checked in to the clinic today for the three night study, and checked out again this evening.

Turned out one of the staff tested positive for Covaids.

The head doctors sat us down and explained to us that one of the team tested positive this afternoon, and that whilst we didn't come into contact with that particular staff member, we did come into contact with staff members who had been in contact with the staff member who tested positive for Covaids.

We're guaranteed the position again in a few weeks, or however long shit takes, plus we'll probably get some compensation for our trouble (head doc said he's gunna do his best to make sure it's as generous as he can get for us).

All very exciting stuff.

Something I noticed was just how unbothered I was by the study being pulled. Sometimes things just happen that are out of your control and there's simply nothing you can do about it, you just roll with it. Of the 4 lads in our room, 2 of them were huffing and puffing about it when the docs left us, and the other 2 of us weren't. Twats.

Almost a year since I did one of these fuckers. Checked in today.

This one is over the course of 18 nights in return for just over £4,500.

The drug is new and is being compared to an already on the market one. It's for epilepsy and they told us there's a potential for hallucinations. Awesome.

I had a look at the schedule and it looks like there's going to be at least 13 of these days where we're doing not much except being fed. I have a lot of shit to do, between my studies, and training courses to assist me in my new job, and I'm going to be productive AF.

The timing of this was strategic and was factored into my recent decision-making. I signed up for this the same day I handed in my resignation. I think it'll be a nice little financial cushion to provide comfort over my transition into full-time with my other job. I'm also quite thrilled that I no longer have to ask anyone for time off work in which to do these trials. Since I'm pretty much my own boss now, I can do them when I want.

Cool story...

Last night I got pulled from the study because my blood enzymes were too high. I was sent home and that was that.

This morning I got a call asking me if I'd like to come back and try again because the client said the blood enzymes weren't actually too high, and they could have proceeded with me.

It was an honest mistake on behalf of one of the staff at the facility, which I will forgive her for because not only am I back on the study (for now!) but I'm getting an extra £240 for the inconvenience of yesterday.

I do have to stay a day longer since I'm a day behind everyone else now, but the 240 quid makes up for that.

I'm going to pretend this was the universe.

Another thing, how come Jaz created this thread 25 years ago asking why are people not doing medical trials and then never appear to have done one ever again? I'm the only true human guinea pig around here.

I get out of jail on Tuesday.

The recruitment lady popped in today, pushing trials. We don't have to wait 90 days between trials anymore, apparently. Now it's 30 days, and I can do another one at the end of January or early February.

She was pushing long trials of up to 34 days but there's no way I'd do another long one so soon after being here for nearly three weeks.

So, I put my name down for an 11 day one in exchange for £3,300. Keep them coming, babe.

As noted by me many times, these things are random as fuck and you're never guaranteed to get on.

We'll see what happens.

Just got a call saying I don't have to finish the study because I caught Covaids on-site. And because of this, I will still get the full payment.

Basically, that works out at over £460 for each of the 9 nights I was there.

I also won't have to wait as long before I can do another.

It's turned out well.

Mate I gotta ask - where do you find these paying medical trials? The ICON link that Jaz put in his original post I can't seem to find any UK coverage for.

Two quick linx I found without researching them much:

https://www.trials4us.co.uk/ongoing-...SAAEgJzxPD_BwE

https://flucamp.com/our-trials/?gcli...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

I don't care that much about trials as I'm living fairly comfortably. However there are a few I know who are skint (and single), thus this'd help them.

I wonder what sort of feeding patterns they want you on? I used to work in pharmaceuticals at one point in my life, and a big deal was to know how well a drug was absorbed by something/one in fed and fasted states. Given that I perform intermittent fasting (and skip eating on some days) I bet that'd cause problems for orally-administered drug trials.

Professional bum. I post here as I have too much time on my hands :P
