Therapy areas Diabetes Digestion & Bowel

Gastroparesis is a long-term, chronic condition where the stomach can’t empty itself in the normal way, resulting in food passing more slowly through the stomach.

  • We are looking for volunteers to take part in clinical trials to better understand the condition and help find new treatments.
  • Eligible participants will be invited in for a First Office Visit.


All studies have been approved by SAHPRA and relevant Ethics committee.

COVID-19 update — we remain open.

For the safety of both staff and patients, we require that our research sites are COVID-19 SMART facilities. That means they use best practices to reduce virus exposure and are dedicated to ensuring they remain open and available for the research of investigational medications.

COVID-19 SMART steps we are taking to ensure safety include:

  • Greatly increased availability of video office visits
  • Ensuring social distancing measures are taken in all waiting areas
  • Continuing the practice of cleaning and disinfecting exams rooms thoroughly between every patient visit
  • Appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) for all staff members at our health clinics
