We have a national reputation for conducting high-quality clinical trials in cardiology and heart surgery. Our discoveries have resulted in heart care that is more innovative, safe, and effective.
What is a Clinical Trial?
Clinical trials usually compare a new medical device or medication to one that doctors already use.
Often, but not in all cases, researchers randomly assign patients who are enrolled in the trial to the new treatment or to the standard of care. The researchers follow all of the patients closely for a period of time to determine whether the new therapy is safe and effective.
Volunteering for a Clinical Trial
Volunteering for a clinical trial is a choice and patients are never obligated to do so. There are several reasons why you may be interested in volunteering for a clinical trial:
- You may be interested in a new therapy
- You may want to improve care for future patients
- You may have a particular interest in science
