Fill out the form below to see if you meet the basic study requirements.

What’s Involved?

To participate in the T2 diabetes study, you will need to:

  • Fill out the eligibility questionnaire above
  • Receive a call from the study staff to answer further qualifications questions and schedule your first screening visit.
  • If you meet the basic qualifications, your next steps are the screening and preparation period which will take 6-7 weeks. During this time, it will be determined if the study is right for you.
  • Participants that move on to the next step are randomized and then receive either the Revita®️ or sham procedure. The follow-up period is 48 weeks. After the follow-up period, all participants that had the sham procedure will be offered the Revita®️ procedure if they are willing, and it is clinically beneficial to them and will have an additional 48-week follow-up period.

What is the investigational treatment?

Revita®️ is a minimally invasive procedure that targets a portion of the small intestine called the duodenum to help control blood glucose levels. Studies have shown that treating the duodenum can improve type 2 diabetes. 1,2,3 Patients are asleep during the procedure, which lasts about one hour, and will be able to go home the same day and resume normal activities.

Frequently asked questions

What is the goal of this study?

Revitalize 1 is a clinical research study evaluating an exciting new procedure for type 2 diabetes that may improve blood sugar without increasing insulin or other medications. All eligible patients can receive the Revita® procedure and medical care related to the study at no cost.

What is a sham procedure?

Similar to how a medication study uses a placebo (sugar pill) for comparison, sham procedures are used in clinical trials so that results of the sham procedures can be compared with the results of the study procedure. Having a comparison allows for a clearer understanding of the investigational treatment results. 

In the case of this clinical trial, those receiving the sham procedure would undergo many of the steps of the Revita® procedure but without the heating process used to remove the excess layer of the duodenum. But don’t worry! If you end up in the group receiving the sham procedure and are still considered eligible, you will be offered the opportunity to receive the Revita® procedure later in the study!

Is there compensation for my participation?

Yes. Participants may receive compensation for their participation which varies depending on location and more details on compensation may be provided by the study site.

Will the study cost anything?

No. All study-related activities and procedures will be provided at no cost.

Revita® is for investigational use only in the US.
