From the medicines you pick up at the pharmacy to the most advanced surgery, modern medicine would not be possible without clinical research. In fact, the government requires that clinical research be done on every new medicine before doctors can prescribe it.
Before clinical research, doctors chose medical remedies based on their best guess. Clinical research helps to take the guesswork out of designing new drugs and medical devices. A clinical research study allows doctors to find the most effective method of care.
Participants in clinical research are the key to moving medicine forward.
