What is a clinical research study?
Why is clinical research important?
Clinical research helps doctors and scientists determine if an investigational medicine or therapies are safe and/or effective for use in humans to potentially treat a condition, disease, or disorder.
Research has shown that certain diseases and medications may impact people differently based on their age, gender, and genetic background, including race and ethnicity.
Therefore, clinical studies often require large numbers of diverse volunteers to participate in a single study, sometimes thousands are needed to obtain reliable information.
