Research Participation Opportunities

KINETIC Research Study (Cesarean Pain Control)

Are you pregnant and having a cesarean delivery? Are you delivering at UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital? You may be eligible for the KINETIC research study.

This research is being done to find out if a single, ultra-low dose of a medication will help reduce pain and opioid needs after cesarean delivery. Eligible participants may receive up to $1,500 over the course of the study.
