Centex Studies-Lake Charles has research studies enrolling for healthcare workers and others who have potentially been exposed to COVID-19.
July 7, 2020 LAKE CHARLES, LA - In recent weeks, the number of new coronavirus cases in Louisiana has skyrocketed, putting the state among the top 5 in the nation for per capita new cases. Even with some restrictions being put back in place, most progress made to flatten the curve has been lost, and there seems to be no end in sight.
“It may seem discouraging to some to see cases back on the rise, but here at Centex, we are rising to the challenge,” says Dr. Michael Seep, Principle Investigator at Centex Studies-Lake Charles. “The drugs we are investigating show real promise, especially for our most vulnerable populations, but we can’t do it alone.”
Healthcare workers are among those at the highest risk for being exposed to COVID-19. Without finding something to protect them, we lose our front-line of defense, and the death toll will continue to rise.
“Our front line of defense and those with the highest risk of complications should be our number one priority,” Dr. Seep said. “Research is the only way we can protect them right now, and hopefully soon, we’re going to find our way back to a semblance of normalcy.”
Centex Studies-Lake Charles has preventative research studies enrolling for healthcare workers and treatment research studies for those who have potentially been exposed to COVID-19.
