Clinical Research Studies

What is a Clinical Trial?

Clinical research trials are supervised research studies of medical procedures or medications to evaluate their safety and effectiveness. Each clinical study is designed to answer specific scientific questions and to find new and better ways to help patients. For any given disease or condition, a clinical trial may:

  • Establish the first effective treatment
  • Establish a more effective treatment
  • Establish a better tolerated treatment
  • Find a new use for a currently available treatment
