What is a clinical research trial?
A clinical research trial is a closely controlled, medically supervised research study to determine the safety and effectiveness of a medication, medical treatment, or device. Clinical trials are an important step in making new medications available for you and future generations.
A patient’s relationship with their physician or primary care provider will continue during the clinical research trial process. Patients that enter a clinical research trial will only receive care related to the study for a fixed period of time.
To help you decide whether or not to participate, Dr. Corder and our research staff involved in the trial will fully explain the details of the study. This process of learning key facts about a clinical research trial before deciding whether or not to participate is known as informed consent. Informed consent is not a binding agreement, and a patient has the option to withdraw from the clinical trial at any time.
