What is a Clinical Trial?

Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, control or treat a disease. The goal is to find a new test or therapy that is safe and effective.

What Happens After The Trail?

Once a given clinical trial concludes, the data is collected to help determine whether the used drug is effective and safe. Your personal identifiable information is never shared with anyone without your prior written consent.

Researchers decide whether they can move to the next phase of the trial. When Phase III of a clinical trial is completed, researchers determine if the test results are medically important. If they are, researchers can submit results to a journal for peer review. Data may also get submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for approval.
