Bruce B Cleeremans, MD and NervePro provide comprehensive and up-to-date adult neurology medical services and diagnostic testing in our Irvine office. The office is state of the art, with electronic medical records since 2001, handicap accessibility, and easy parking. It is conveniently located adjacent to major freeways and the Hoag Hospital Irvine and Hoag Orthopedic Institute. Dr Cleeremans is on staff at these hospitals and a participant in the highly regarded Hoag Neuroscience Program. He is also on the Board of Directors of the recently established Orange County Vital Aging Program supporting research and treatment in Alzheimer's and related disorders. World class imaging centers are located nearby for MRI, CT and ultrasound studies. He works closely with each patient's referring physicians, whether local or distant. Advanced research in neuropathy, seizures, multiple sclerosis, memory disorders, and pain is also available in the clinic.

Clinical trials can be an exciting way to address a medical problem. Participation allows patients to receive medication that might otherwise not be available through any means, and the office visits and any blood tests or other diagnostic procedures associated with study are provided free of charge. In some cases there may also be a patient stipend for the time it takes out of your schedule and for transportation assistance. The research at NervePro consists of Phase III studies. This type of study involves medications or devices that have already been shown to be safe in preliminary Phase I and II studies and to have some degree of effectiveness in Phase II studies. Phase III studies test the medication on a larger number of participants with the expectation that the next step would be approval by the FDA if safety and efficacy are established.
Unlike many clinical trial centers, NervePro is an active neurology practice, and patients are under no pressure to participate in research if they chose not to. Those patients that have been involved in trials are allowed to stay in the practice as regular patients once their participation is completed if Dr. Cleeremans is a provider on their insurance plan.
The research division of NervePro Medical Corporation has successfully performed studies in Headache, Painful neuropathy, Seizures, Alzheimer's and multi-infarct dementias, myofascial pain, fibromyalgia, low back pain, insomnia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, TIAs, and strokes.
