Clinical Trials

Not sure what clinical trials are? Clinical trials are carefully controlled research studies conducted by doctors to improve the care and treatment of patients. The goal of clinical trials is to develop therapies that are more effective against the disease with fewer adverse side effects. Treatments proven safe and effective in clinical trials are usually approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use as a standard treatment.
