Clinical Research FAQs
What is Clinical Research?
Clinical research involves scientific studies to develop new treatments, medications, medical devices, and cures. Our research site specializes in conducting studies in various medical disciplines, including psoriasis, asthma, rhinitis, obesity, primary immunodeficiency, atopic dermatitis, colorectal cancer screening, thyroid disease, and cardiovascular disease.
What is a Clinical Trial?
A clinical trial, on the other hand, is a type of clinical research involving a scientifically controlled study of the safety and effectiveness of a therapeutic agent, such as a drug, vaccine, or device, using human volunteers who have consented to participate. Participants must meet specific criteria determined by the study sponsor. If they meet these requirements, a study coordinator will schedule a visit to complete the informed consent process. During this process, participants will be informed in detail about the study and made aware that they are free to withdraw from the study at any time without any consequences.
All office visits, exams, lab work, procedures, and study therapy agents are free for the participant. Additionally, volunteers are frequently reimbursed for their travel and time commitment to the study.
