Frequently asked questions about clinical trials

You may have heard about clinical trials, but wonder what they are and if one might be right for you.

  • Our research department funds studies through a variety of sources including:

    • Drug companies
    • Medical device companies
    • Federal health agencies
    • Research grants
    • Private foundations


  • Clinical trials, also called clinical research, are studies designed to find answers to specific health questions. Clinical trials look at:

    • New drugs or new combinations of drugs
    • New surgical procedures or devices
    • New ways to use existing treatments

  • The potential benefits of being in a clinical trial include:

    • You might get free medication, medical care and lab work.
    • You might get treatment that could be more effective than the standard approach.
    • You will be adding to what is known about your condition, possibly leading to improved options in the future.

  • Many people volunteer because it's a chance to help researchers find new ways to fight disease. But, there is no guarantee that the treatment will be effective for you.

    If you're considering a clinical trial because you have been diagnosed with a disease, it's important to take time to learn about your condition and your treatment options. Talk it over with your doctor first.
