Clinical Trials




What are Clinical Trials?

Clinical Trials are medical research studies designed to test and explore cutting edge drugs or different drug combinations for new, advanced, and safe treatments for humans with certain illnesses. The studies are sponsored by national organizations and pharmaceutical companies and are all approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA).
