Find a clinical trial

A clinical trial or study is research in which people can participate. It is one of the final steps in the process to look for better ways to prevent, diagnose, or treat your condition. The purpose of a clinical trial is to research the effectiveness of a treatment, medication, experimental drug, or device. Many of the standard treatments that patients receive today were developed based on the results of previous clinical trials.

Every clinical trial has specific safety criteria that define which patients can participate in the trial. Be sure to ask your doctor which one is right for you.

Consider joining a trial today. You could help change the future of medicine.
