We have participated in many trials that have now become the current state of care. While we are proud of these accomplishments, we are still striving for better treatments, and someday, a cure for our patients.
There are many benefits to participating in a clinical trial. Participants receive examinations, testing, and new treatment at no cost. These treatments are not available outside the study and patients receive compensation for their participation in trials. There are potential risks and benefits associated with any experimental treatment, but all clinical trials are conducted with FDA approval. Only you, your family, and your physician can decide if a trial is right for you.
