Clinical Research

Through clinical research, doctors find new ways to treat medical conditions and diseases. A research study helps to find out if a new drug or treatment is effective. During a research study, volunteers test these new methods while being carefully watched by a doctor.

What is a clinical trial?

A clinical trial is a health related research study in human beings that follows a pre-defined protocol.

Why participate?

Participants in clinical trials may gain access to new research treatments before they are widely available. They may help others by contributing to medical research while playing a more active role in their own health care.

What will this cost me?

Nothing. There is no cost to you to participate in a clinical trial.

Will my doctor be involved?

We will talk with your doctor to be sure a study is appropriate for you. Copies of all study testing results will be sent to your physician.

What if I don’t like it?

Participants are free to quit the study medication at any time for any reason.

How do I find out more?

Please contact the Clinical Research Department to learn more about the current clinical trials.
