What is a Clinical Trial?
Clinical Trials explore new ways to prevent, detect and treat diseases and are critical for innovative discoveries and medical breakthroughs.
Clinical Trial Participants with an illness or disease help create new treatments and advance understanding of diseases that can lead to a cure. Clinical Trial Participants are offered access to investigational and innovative treatment options at no cost and may be reimbursed for their time and travel.
Clinical Trials offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future.
The Clinical Research Department bridges the specialties of ENT, Asthma, Allergy, and Immunology to provide a comprehensive specialty clinic serving both adults and pediatrics with standard of care and clinical research study options.
Importance of Clinical Trials:
- are critical for innovative discoveries and medical breakthroughs
- help create new treatments and advance understanding of disease that can lead to a cure
