What is a Clinical Trial & How Does it Help?

Your decision to participate in a clinical research study is an important commitment.  You are contributing to medical research that might help others like you in the future. Clinical trials are the fastest and safest way to find out if a particular drug works.  The goal is to gather the best-quality information about the drug being tested. Clinical trials try to find out if there is a true difference between the  medication being studied and a placebo.  Important medical decisions will be made based on this study, whatever the outcome is.

You must be 18 years of age or older to participate in a clinical trial study. Eligible participants will receive study-related medication and health assessments. Additionally, eligible participants will be compensated for transportation and parking costs.

What To Expect if You Participate:

A clinical trial is a research study in human volunteers that is designed to answer important questions about an investigational medication, including:

  • Does the investigational medication work?
  • Which dose works best?
