What is Fox Trial Finder?


Fox Trial Finder is a clinical trial matching tool that helps patients and their loved ones get involved in speeding a cure for Parkinson’s disease. Volunteers who sign up for Fox Trial Finder receive a list of trials in their area and get email updates about new trials that start recruiting, helping them determine which trials make sense for them. By matching volunteers to the clinical trials that need them, Fox Trial Finder speeds progress toward therapeutic breakthroughs, bringing better treatments to patients faster.

Why Fox Trial Finder?

Across the board, clinical trials face a critical need for volunteers. Clinical trials are a key step on the path to developing new therapies — and ultimately, a cure — for Parkinson’s disease. Yet, low enrollment in clinical trials is one of the most significant problems facing Parkinson’s drug development.

85% of clinical trials are delayed and 30% never even get off the ground due to a lack of volunteers. In fact, an estimated 1 million people live with Parkinson’s in the US — yet trials enroll an average of just one volunteer per month.

It can be difficult to find trials in your area that are right for you. Fox Trial Finder matches you with trials that need you based on your location, some medical history, and other basic information. Boosting clinical trial recruitment helps to speed therapeutic breakthroughs and bring better treatments to patients faster.

By participating in research, you give something money can’t buy. No amount of funding or other resources can make up for a lack of clinical trial volunteers.

How it Works

1. Find the Trials that Need You
Register and complete your profile with basic information, such as location, gender, date of birth, and brief medical history. Upon completing the profile questions, you will receive a list of trial matches in your area that need someone like you. Fox Trial Finder generates this list from our database of ongoing Parkinson's disease (PD) clinical trials. You can review the details of any trial to determine whether you are interested.

2. Connect with Trial Teams
When you find a trial match that is of interest, the Fox Trial Finder built-in secure messaging system lets you connect anonymously with the study’s recruitment coordinator. If you’d rather connect with a trial team outside of Fox Trial Finder, every trial listed includes updated contact information for the trial team so that you can reach out directly.

3. Receive New Matches in Your Inbox
Volunteers who are registered are matched to new trials that begin recruiting. Fox Trial Finder keeps you updated on new trial matches via ongoing email alerts up to once per week.

4. Your Privacy is Assured
With state of the art security protocols, your identity always remains confidential on Fox Trial Finder. Your name and email address will never be revealed unless you share this information with a trial team member.

5. Trial Teams Can Register, Too
Clinical trial site staff can register their trials with Fox Trial Finder, enabling easy management of trial details, functionality to add multiple sites to one trial and the ability to find volunteer leads. Trial teams can search for qualified volunteers, review those who have expressed interest in their trial, and connect directly with volunteers through the online messaging feature.
