                  Clinical trials

                  Clinical trials

                  Clinical trials are research studies which test new ways to treat, prevent, or diagnose diseases.


                  A clinical trial is a research study that looks at how well a new treatment works in people. The treatment may be a drug, medical procedure, medical device, or even a lifestyle change.

                  Finding a clinical trial

                  There are many clinical trial opportunities and new ones are developed every day.


                  Each study is reviewed, approved, and watched over by an independent panel of qualified doctors, researchers, and members of the community called an "Institutional Review Board" (IRB).
