About Clinical Trials

Participation is entirely voluntary, and we adhere to strict confidentiality. Should you participate, most often all costs are covered, including physical examination, laboratory work, follow-up visits, and the study drug. In some studies, you may also receive financial compensation.

Clinical studies evaluate investigational drugs to treat disorders or disease. Prior to their use, the medications are extensively studied in the laboratory. Furthermore, all federally regulated clinical studies must be approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB), which has primary responsibility to the patient.

How to Enroll

We are currently enrolling volunteers for the following studies. To find out more information on a study or to schedule an evaluation appointment, contact us using the information at the bottom of the page. A member of our research staff will then contact you. All information provided by you is viewed only by our physicians or the Study Coordinator conducting the study.
