Clinical trials are an important part of the medical research process.  Through clinical trials, scientific discoveries can lead to better ways to prevent, detect, and treat diseases and medical conditions.  Clinical trials are also a key part of the process in finding out which treatments work, which do not, and why.  Importantly, clinical trials also contribute to new knowledge about diseases and medical conditions.

Participants in a clinical trial are protected and closely monitored.  The information learned from clinical trials help improve healthcare and to find which treatments are more effective than other treatments.  The benefits of participating in a clinical trial include:

  • You will receive expert medical care.

  • Your health will be closely monitored.

  • You may have the opportunity to benefit from a new treatment.

  • You will help others by helping to advance medical and scientific knowledge.
