What are clinical trials?
Clinical trials are scientific studies conducted to find better ways to prevent, screen for, diagnose, or treat disease. Clinical trial sites assist pharmaceutical companies working together with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to find new ways to help patients better manage their healthcare. Clinical trials produce high-quality data for healthcare decision making.
These studies follow strict, scientific and ethical standards which protect patients who volunteer for clinical trials. The results are used to determine if a medication or device should be approved by the FDA. Our doctors are proud to be at the forefront of advancing medical and surgical care.
