Participating in a Clinical Trial

Clinical trials are essential to advancing medical breakthroughs, testing new treatments that could be tomorrow’s cures.

Patients who volunteer for a study may help researchers gain new insights into a disease or evaluate the success of a new treatment. Participants also may have access to treatments that are not available to the general population.

All clinical activities are overseen by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) to comply with ethical standards as well as government and institutional regulations.
