What is a clinical research trial?
Did you know that even the bottle of Advil in your medicine cabinet has gone through the process of a clinical research trial?
Clinical trials are the way modern medicine is developed for the next generation. They are also used to explain the causes of various illnesses and to initiate new medical trends. The wealth of information collected in clinical trials assists the medical community on how best to understand, treat and possibly cure medical conditions and diseases.
Participants who meet the trial’s requirements help researchers collect data for future medical developments that the FDA could potentially approve. For example, they could work with a team of experts to try a newly developed drug or treatment and log their experience. During the study, they receive free treatment as well as compensation for their time. Through our partnership with Clinical Research Partners, LLC, VPFW patients are able to participate in clinical research trials under the supervision and care of our own physicians and staff at one of our VPFW offices.
