A Clinical research study (also called a clinical trial) is a medical study that helps to answer important questions about an investigational drug or device, such as: Does it work, or how effective is it compared to another drug/device?
All medications must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved by regulatory authorities for doctors to prescribe to patients. Without people taking part in these studies, we would have no new treatments. The volunteers who participate in clinical research studies play a major role in helping to advance medicine.

All study-related care is provided at no cost to you. You do not need health insurance to participate.
Volunteers who take part in the study may be eligible to receive compensation for their time and travel.
