Find a Clinical Trial

About Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The main purpose of a clinical trial is to find a better way to prevent, diagnose, or treat a disease. Clinical trials are part of a long, careful research process. Most clinical trials study new drugs or procedures. Everyone who participates in clinical trials is a volunteer. Participants can choose to stop their participation in a clinical trial at any time.

Clinical trials are important for developing new treatments. Many of today’s standard-of-care treatments are based on the results of previous clinical trials.
