Do you have suffer from Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs)?
An estimated 50-60% of females will experience a urinary tract infection (UTI) in their lifetime. 11% of females will experience them at least once per year. These UTIs can be aggravating and inconvenient. The issue with UTIs is that they are often caused by a bacterial infection and require antibiotics to cure. Taking antibiotics all the time creates a situation where more and more bacteria are becoming antibiotic resistant, and this means bacterial infections are becoming more difficult to treat. Finding solutions to treat bacterial infections such as UTIs without using antibiotics is important. Antibiotics can cause all sorts of secondary issues such as GI upset, fatigue, and sleep disturbances.
D-Mannose is a naturally occurring sugar and can target certain bacteria such as E. coli (responsible for 80% of UTIs) and prevent them from attaching to the urinary lining and creating infections. D-Mannose surrounds these bacteria, and they are washed out with urine. Without the ability to attach to the lining there is no infection. There is evidence that even within 24 hours D-Mannose can significantly reduce the number of bacteria in animal models.
We are looking for participants willing to join our study for UTI infections. It’s a 7-day study that starts at the beginning of a UTI infection, but not to the point where a more serious infection is occurring, and antibiotics would be needed to prevent further issues of the upper urinary tract such as a kidney infection.
Paid compensation of up to $800 for each qualified participant upon completion of this study.
Eligible participants will need to:
- Be Female and ages 18-65
- Have an active uncomplicated UTI (frequent, urgent and paint urine voiding/pelvic, low back pain)
- Agree to keep lifestyle habits the same during the study.
- Not be diabetic (Type 1 or Type2)
- Not menstruating during the study (could alter testing)
- Currently NOT taking Antibiotics

What is a clinical trial?
Clinical trials on natural products are research studies in which people help doctors and researchers test out claims that are made on health and wellness products. Having scientific evidence to back up the claims on natural products helps give consumers like you confidence that the products you are buying are safe and effective.
Who conducts a clinical trial?
At KGK Science, our studies are overseen by medical doctors and a proficient team of nutritionists and clinical coordinators who will guide you through each step of your participant experience.
Who is eligible to participate in a clinical trial?
Each study has its own guidelines called “eligibility criteria”. To ensure the strongest results, researchers want study participants to be alike in key ways. Examples of eligibility criteria for a trial might be age, gender, weight/height ratio and/or your previous medical history.
Will it cost me any money to join a clinical trial?
No, there are no out of pocket expenses for you to join a clinical trial other than your travel expenses to and from the clinic site. KGK Science provides you with all the necessary requirements to participate, including parking fees AND you are compensated for your time.
How long do your studies last?
Some studies are only one full day, and others may run for a few weeks or months. The schedule of visits and duration is discussed with you prior to you making a commitment to join the study.

Are clinical trials safe?
Researchers, doctors, and other health professionals conduct research studies according to strict rules set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Health Canada and other regulatory agencies. These rules are to protect clinical trial participants and to make sure they are treated as conscientiously as possible. Research studies are also overseen by medical ethics groups to ensure that study participants are treated correctly.
Can I leave a research study once it has begun?
Yes. You are free to leave the trial at any time. If you do decide to leave, you should let the research team know and tell them why you are leaving the study. Early termination measures will be done to ensure your safe exit from the study.
