FluCamp Is Where You Help Us Fight Flu & Cold Viruses

FluCamp is all about improving the health of the population, through increasing understanding around common viral illnesses – like the common cold and flu.

Ultimately, the more that we understand about how viruses affect the human immune system, the more quickly we can find and test better ways to treat them. The end goal of clinical trials like those we conduct at FluCamp is to potentially eradicate these common illnesses completely – or at least make treatment of them as easy and effective as possible.

 

That’s why FluCamp exists. We welcome volunteers to take part in our clinical trials under expertly supervised conditions, to further medical research and understanding, and help us to take the understanding of viral illnesses to a new level.

Volunteers are central to the work that we do; we couldn't do it without them. Our studies focus on testing new treatments on real people, in a safe, controlled, clinical environment. We screen volunteers closely following the application process, and only match them to suitable trials. When the trial starts, we only inoculate them with a weak cold or flu virus so the body can fight this off without a high level of risk, before monitoring the disease cycle as they go from healthy to sick to healthy again in our bespoke medical research facility.

As well as needing volunteers for our standard common cold and flu trials, we also require help from asthmatics for our specific common cold studies - designed to help alleviate the distress and trauma caused by the two illnesses combined.

FluCamp & hVIVO

FluCamp is run by hVIVO, a world leader in clinical trials. hVIVO provides clinical research services for a range of leading industry, governmental and academic organisations, and is proud to have a reputation of safety and high standards at its core.

FluCamp has over 25 years’ experience of running clinical studies, all of which are ethically and regulatory approved. We have inoculated thousands of volunteers from across the country, all of whom have helped to shape the progression of research we’re working so hard to achieve. At our clinical trial centre, based in London, our studies generally last 10 to 14 days – with volunteers receiving up to £3,000 in compensation for their help with our important research.
