What are Clinical Studies?

Clinical studies are carefully supervised and monitored research studies that explore whether a medical strategy, treatment, or device is safe and effective for humans. These studies may also show which medical approaches work best for certain illnesses or groups of people.

The purpose of clinical studies is research, so studies are designed to follow strict scientific standards with the goals of protecting patients and helping to produce reliable study results. Results from clinical studies may be important and have the potential to advance medical knowledge and help improve patient care. However, study results are not guaranteed and may not improve patient care for study participants, so it is important that you read and understand the patient consent materials that are provided to you prior to enrolling.

Participation in a clinical research study is voluntary and a personal decision that should be made after talking with your doctor and family.
