Southern Cross University clinical trials
- CANN sleep trial
- Healthy ageing trial
- Osteoarthritis trial
- Register to participate in a Ki-Whole trial
Do you suffer from poor sleep?
Southern Cross University researchers are investigating the efficacy of an over-the-counter botanical cannabidiol (CBD) product to help with sleep disturbances in women and men.
They are seeking generally healthy individuals aged 18-65 years old, who have self-reported poor sleep. This may include people who have difficulty initiating sleep, maintaining sleep, or are waking earlier than desired. Participants can partake in the trial in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane or Lismore. Each participant will partake in the trial for 10 weeks.
This trial involves participation in a randomized placebo-controlled clinical trial, which means participants will receive either a placebo or an active product. A placebo is a treatment which is designed to have no therapeutic value, but is similar in look, taste and smell to the other treatment being tested.
This clinical trial has approval from the Southern Cross University Human Research Ethics Committee, SCU HREC number: 2021/031

Are you interested in healthy ageing?
SCU research partners Ki-Whole Enterprises is investigating the use of a natural marine product on body composition, muscular strength and inflammation in women and men.
They are seeking non-smoking generally healthy volunteers (aged 40-65 years of age) for our latest 12 week placebo-controlled clinical trial.
Maintaining a healthy body composition, particularly skeletal muscle mass, is a critical factor in successful ageing. Changes to our body composition can begin during the fourth decade of life; supplements which are found to help maintain a healthy body composition could play an important role in healthy ageing along with a healthy lifestyle.
Participants who have met all inclusion criteria will attend 2 clinical appointments at the Southern Cross University’s Lismore campus. Participants will receive an assessment of their body composition and muscular strength, along with a measure of their blood fatty acids and several inflammation markers.
This trial will not suit those with a shellfish allergy.
This clinical trial has approval from the Southern Cross University Human Research Ethics Committee (ECN: 2020-117).

Do you suffer from osteoarthritis?
Following several successful studies, Ki-Whole Enterprises is continuing to investigate the effects of a natural marine product on osteoarthritis.
They are seeking non-smoking men (aged 45–75 years of age) who have osteoarthritis of the knee, but are otherwise healthy.
Participants who have met all inclusion criteria will attend 2 clinical appointments at Southern Cross University’s Lismore campus during the 6 week study.
This clinical trial has approval from the Southern Cross University Human Research Ethics Committee (ECN-2021-045).
