Clinical research is the process by which new medicines are vetted for safety and efficacy. The data from the research studies are used to help improve the knowledge and science of medicine.
Clinical research trials are open to anybody. Studies have specific criteria for who can join, but generally, do not require insurance and include exams and lab work at no cost.
Volunteers have a variety of reasons for joining a clinical research study. Including, early access to new treatments, financial benefits, and helping contribute to the science of disease prevention and treatment.
Our patients have a variety of reasons for joining a clinical research study. Here are some of the reasons we hear most common.
Unfortunately, many rare diseases often lack sufficient treatment options. The FDA and NIH (National Institute of Health) has programs to assist pharmaceutical companies in researching new treatment options both financially and with fast-track programs. At STAT Research our mission is to help improve the lives and standard of living for our communities. If you have a rare disease and have few or insufficient options to treatment please let us know. We will work to help find research studies that may give you additional treatment options, and can notify you when new studies become available.
