Clinical research trials
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.
