Every medical treatment currently in use, from your neighbor’s high blood pressure medicine to your friend's thyroid regimen, was first put to the test with clinical trials. There is no doubt that volunteering for a clinical trial is a significant gift to medical innovation, and a wonderful way to participate in the advancement of medical science.
A clinical trial is a research study in which volunteers receive investigational treatments under the supervision of a physician and other research professionals. The study area of clinical trials can be anything from cardiovascular disease to oncology to mental health to orthopedics.
Participating in a clinical trial gives you the chance to play an active role in your own health care, provides you with expert medical care at leading health care facilities and access to new treatments before they are widely available, and enables you to help others by contributing directly to medical research.
