Industry Sponsored Clinical Trials and Studies
A clinical study or trial is a research study to answer specific questions about new therapies or new ways of using known treatments. Clinical studies/trials test potential treatments in human volunteers to see if they should be approved for wider use in the general population.
Why Participate in a Clinical Trial?
Participants in clinical trials can play a more active role in their own health care, gain access to new research treatments before they are widely available, and help others by contributing to medical research.
