Centex Studies Opens New Site Near Westfield, TX In Response to COVID

Centex Studies-North Houston is currently conducting clinical trials for COVID-19 treatment.

August 20, 2020 HOUSTON, TX – The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the necessity of research and finding a safe and effective treatment and vaccine as quickly as possible. Centex Studies is a multi-specialty clinical research site network with site locations across Texas and Louisiana. In response to this need, Centex Studies has opened a new research location in north Houston near Westfield, TX.  

“We are so excited to bring more research to the north Houston area,” said Dr. Ali Bajwa, Principle Investigator at Centex Studies-North Houston. “The need for effective treatment and prevention options is huge, but Houston people are so diverse and willing to do their part in beating this world-wide pandemic. 

We need treatment and vaccine options as soon as possible, but we also need to make sure they are as safe and effective as possible across all age groups, races, ethnicities, and medical backgrounds. This is what makes Houston the perfect location for research. Houston is one of the most diverse cities in the nation. However, it also one of the biggest cities in the country as well. One Houston location for Centex Studies couldn't reach the whole population. 

“Centex has been in Houston for over 15 years,” says Devora Torrence, President of Centex Studies. "We've always felt like we should have more than one location for the Houston area, but now with the pandemic, it almost became necessary." 

Centex Studies-North Houston currently has clinical trials enrolling for COVID-19 treatment. Adults who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 and test positive within 48 hours of screening could qualify. Those who are eligible and choose to participate could receive a potential new treatment option or placebo, and oversight from the Centex medical team. There is no cost or insurance required to participate. Compensation for study-related time and travel is available.
