Study Information

About the study

This clinical study is assisting in the development of a new medication  to provide a better treatment option for people born with achondroplasia – the most common type of disproportionate dwarfism. Skeletal Dysplasia (such as achondroplasia) is a group of conditions where bones don’t fully develop resulting in short stature and unusual limb proportions. There are currently only limited treatment options available.

Volunteers will be reimbursed $3,000 for their time to assist in this study.

The current study schedule is available here(pdf).
