Clinical research trials

Clinical trials are research studies in which people volunteer to help find answers to specific health questions.
Why participate in a clinical trial?

Today, people are living longer lives from successful treatments that are the results of past clinical trials. Through clinical trials, researchers and doctors can answer specific questions about the treatment of a specific health issue. These can include testing new drugs or devices for safety and effectiveness, comparing existing treatments or studying new ways to use existing medications. 

Advancements in medical treatments.

Being involved in a clinical research study allows you to play a more active role in your own health care, help others by contributing to the research that advances treatments and possibly gain access to new research treatments before they are available to the general public.

Frequently asked questions

In order to participate in a specific clinical trial, you must meet qualifications for the individual study. These are based upon several factors such as gender, age, other treatments, stage and type of disease, as well as medical history. You will be carefully screened prior to being enrolled into a study.
Before enrolling into a clinical trial, the details of your specific trial will be thoroughly explained. The medication or device involved will be discussed and required procedures will be covered. We also address any the benefits of your trial as well as the potential risks. Any questions you have will be answered at your initial consultation, as well as throughout the clinical trial period. Research patients are monitored closely by research staff throughout the study; however, while research assessment results may be shared with your primary care provider, being in a clinical trial does not replace your routine medical care. 

It is important to note that all clinical trials are voluntary, and you may decline to be involved or you may withdraw at any time during the study.
Clinical research falls under the guidance of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the laws by which it is governed. Each trial is reviewed prior to and throughout the study by an Institutional Review Board (IRB), whose purpose is to protect the safety, welfare and rights of the patients involved in clinical research.
