What Are Clinical Research Trials?
Clinical research trials are carefully controlled research studies in which people volunteer to test the safety and effectiveness of new drugs, medical products or techniques. Each study gathers scientific evidence to find better ways to prevent, diagnose or treat medical conditions. In the U.S., all drugs undergo rigorous clinical trials before being approved for use by the general public. Research trials are an integral part of medicines and devices getting approved for use.
Why Should I Consider Participating?
Many people who have enrolled in clinical trials have been helped as a result of having access to leading-edge care they otherwise would not have had. Quite often, the first people to have been helped by a medication or medical device are people who were part of its clinical research trial.
