Our doctors participate in research studies to help investigate new treatment options.
What is a clinical trial?
In medicine, a clinical trial is a type of research study. The most commonly performed clinical trials evaluate new drugs, medical devices, biologics, or other interventions on patients in strictly scientifically controlled settings, and are required for regulatory authority (the Food and Drug Administration). Trials may be designed to assess the safety and effectiveness of an experimental therapy, to assess whether the new intervention is better than standard therapy, or to compare the efficacy of two standard or marketed interventions. The trial objective and design are always documented in a clinical trial protocol.
Why participate in a clinical trial?
Participants in clinical trials gain access to new research treatments before they are widely available, help others by contributing to medical research, have access to more personalized care, and often times receive study medication at no cost.
What happens during a clinical trial?
The clinical trial process depends on the kind of trial being conducted. The clinical trail team includes doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals. They check the health of the participant at the beginning to the trial, give specific instructions for participating in the trial, monitor the participant carefully during the trial, and follow-up as needed after the trial is complete. To ensure patient safety, some clinical trials involve more tests and doctor visits than the participant would normally have for an illness or condition. In addition, study participants may receive compensation for time and travel.
