Would you like to play an active role in your own health care? Would you like to help with the advancement of drug developments for diseases that affect many people? You can when you participate in a clinical trial.

Clinical trials are studies managed by government agencies, educational institutions, not-for-profit organizations, or commercial businesses to develop, produce, and evaluate the effectiveness of new treatments for therapies and diseases.

We're here to help you understand the risks and benefits of participating in a clinical trial.
