Our Studies

What is a Clinical Study?

Typically medical research studies involving people are called clinical studies or clinical trials. Clinical research is one of the ways the medical world looks for better or new ways of treating illness and disease. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires that all medications be thoroughly tested for safety and effectiveness before they can be marketed in pharmacies and prescribed by your doctor.

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) defines a clinical study as a controlled study involving human subjects that is designed to prospectively evaluate the safety and effectiveness of new drugs or devices or of behavioral interventions.


Why Participate in a Clinical Study?

Participants can play a pro-active role in their own health care, gain access to new research treatments before they become widely available, and help others by impacting medical research.

Deciding to participate in a clinical study is an important personal decision. You can always contact our study research team to ask questions about specific studies. It is also helpful to talk to a physician, family members, or friends when deciding to join a study.
