Clinical Research Information

What Is Clinical Research?

Clinical Research trials are used to test and evaluate investigational drugs, treatments, and new devices.  Investigational products must prove to be safe and effective before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will consider the investigational product for approval.  Testing in humans is permitted only if a person volunteers for participation and understands the risks and benefits of participation.  It is crucial to be aware of potential side effects and other health issues that may be the result of an investigational product.  Clinical Research enables access to new treatments, expert medical care, and contributes knowledge to medical treatment advances.

Who Can Be in a Research Study?

Subjects must meet specific criteria to be eligible for study participation.  Enrollment criteria can include age, gender, disease, severity of disease, previous treatment history, and other underlying medical conditions.
