HOW CLINICAL TRIALS WORK

Clinical trials measure if new therapies of a new medication are better than the best treatments we have today.  The treatments medications currently used were carefully evaluated in clinical trials before being approved for widespread use.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE

Clinical trials are open to participants from all backgrounds and stages in life. The more diverse the participant population is during the trial; the more researchers will understand how the population at large will respond to the treatment once it is on the market.

INCLUSION/EXCLUSION CRITERIA

People interested in participating in one of our clinical trials are screened to make sure that the trial is right and safe for their specific health needs. Making sure that participants meet the criteria of the trial guarantees that the data produced from the trial is meaningful.

WHEN TO PARTICIPATE

You should consider all of your options from the beginning. See what trials are being offered and decide if one of them might be right for you. Some clinical trials are specifically designed to study participants who have not received any treatments yet, so some clinical trials are designed to be "first line" treatment.
