What are clinical trials?
Clinical trials (or clinical research studies) are an essential component in the advancement of medical research. It is through these trials that medical professionals are able to find new, innovative ways to prevent, detect, or treat diseases. Clinical trials provide the information necessary to ensure the safety and efficacy of potential new drugs, as well as striving to improve the quality of life of those with chronic illnesses.
Who can participate?
There are two types of people that can participate in clinical trials: healthy volunteers and patient volunteers. Healthy volunteers are those who have no known health issues, while patient volunteers are those who have the health problem for the new drug/therapy that is being investigated. Both participants provide invaluable information used to better understand, diagnose, treat, or cure the specific disease or condition.
Participating in a clinical trial can be a very rewarding experience and can help save the lives and reduce the suffering of many people. While there are always risks being involved in a clinical trial, every effort is made through ethical guidelines and protocols to keep participants safe from harm. There are also many benefits to participation, such as early access to break-through drugs, treatments and therapies not yet released to the general public, regular medical care, attention by medical professionals, possible compensation, and most importantly, the possibility of being a part of a medical cure.
Currently Enrolling Clinical Research Studies Include:
Iron Deficiency Anemia and Chronic Kidney Disease
Cardiovascular Events, Diabetes and High Triglycerides
Cardiovascular Inflammation Reduction Trial (CIRT)
