Clinical Trials

OverviewSlice

Clinical trials are the key to finding new treatments for many of the diseases and medical problems facing the world. We can't overstate the importance of clinical trials, being the first contact between the treatment and the environment the treatment was designed for--the human body.

No amount of laboratory testing can make up for the information we gather during a single clinical trial with volunteers like you. Clinical trials help us speed the latest medical breakthroughs out of the lab and make them available to the patients who need them most.

If you participate in a clinical trial, you may benefit from a new drug, procedure, or symptom-control method, while helping scientists evaluate its effectiveness. Your participation may also contribute directly to finding better ways to prevent, detect, or treat diseases.
