Are You or Your Patients Interested in Clinical Trials?
Clinical trials are structured and measured research studies that help determine the safety and effectiveness of:
- Ground-breaking medical tests
- Innovative new treatments
- Pioneering medical devices
- Newly discovered medications
Clinical trials help determine the effectiveness in screening for, diagnosing, treating, or preventing a certain disease or condition and are a critical part of the ongoing work of researchers to discover new medical therapies and improve existing ones. These studies add to existing medical knowledge and provide reliable data to assist in healthcare decision-making and guideline creation.
