Over the past several years a large and growing number of people have been interested in learning more about clinical research and how to participate in a study. This site provides information about the clinical trials process and what it means for you to volunteer to participate in a clinical trial.
We participate in clinical trials in an effort to allow our patients access to new therapies. We restrict our participation to the study of "new" medications that other-wise are not available to the general public. Sometimes we participate in trials of new applications for "old" medications.
