What are Clinical Trials?

Clinical trials are a subset of clinical research and reside at the core of all medical advances.  Clinical trials look at new ways of preventing, detecting, and/or treating diseases.  Treatments might be new drugs or new drug combinations, new surgical devices or procedures, or new ways to utilize existing treatments.The goal of clinical trials is to determine the safety and efficacy of new treatments.  Clinical trials can also look at other aspects of care such as improving the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses.

People participate in clinical trials for a variety of reasons.  Most healthy research participants list their desire to help others as their main motivation for enrolling in a clinical trial.  Many of these participants have friends or family members that have suffered from conditions with limited treatment options in the past.  Research participants with an existing illness or disease also participate to help others, but also for the possibility of receiving investigational treatments not yet available to the general public.

Clinical trials offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future.

Why participate in Clinical Trials?

Clinical studies play a crucial role in determining the benefits and risks of new medical approaches, shaping medical practices, and contributing to the development of innovative healthcare solutions.

Covid-19 Infection

COVID-19 infection, caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, is a contagious respiratory illness characterized by symptoms ranging from mild cold-like symptoms to severe respiratory distress. It emerged in late 2019, leading to a global pandemic. Common symptoms include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. Preventive measures like vaccination, mask-wearing, and physical distancing are crucial in controlling its spread.

A novel coronavirus, named Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), was identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China in 2019. The illness caused by this virus has been named coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).by CDC

Urinary Tract Infection

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common bacterial infection that affects the urinary system, including the bladder, urethra, and sometimes the kidneys. It often causes symptoms like frequent urination, burning sensation, and discomfort. UTIs are typically treated with antibiotics and can be prevented by staying hydrated and maintaining good hygiene.

Lung Cancer Screening

Lung cancer is a malignant disease that originates in the lungs, usually linked to smoking but also occurring in non-smokers. It involves abnormal cell growth in lung tissues, often causing symptoms like persistent cough, chest pain, and difficulty breathing. Early detection through screenings can improve treatment outcomes, which may involve surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or targeted therapies.

Covid-19 Exposure

COVID-19 exposure refers to being in close contact with an individual infected by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes the COVID-19 illness. Close contact involves being within a certain distance of the infected person for a prolonged period. This exposure increases the risk of contracting the virus, and individuals who have been exposed are advised to monitor their health, get tested, and follow public health guidelines to prevent further spread.

Obesity/Weight Loss

Obesity is a medical condition characterized by excess body weight due to an accumulation of fat. It can increase the risk of various health issues like diabetes, heart disease, and joint problems. Weight loss involves reducing calorie intake, increasing physical activity, and making lifestyle changes to achieve a healthier weight and reduce associated health risks. It often requires a balanced approach of healthy eating, regular exercise, and behavioral adjustments.

Diabetes is a chronic medical condition characterized by elevated blood sugar levels due to either insufficient insulin production (Type 1 diabetes) or ineffective insulin utilization (Type 2 diabetes). It can lead to various health complications affecting the heart, kidneys, eyes, and nerves. Management involves blood sugar monitoring, medication (insulin or oral drugs), a balanced diet, regular exercise, and lifestyle adjustments to maintain stable blood sugar levels and prevent complications.

Colon Cancer Screening

Colon cancer screening is a preventive healthcare practice aimed at detecting colorectal cancer or precancerous growths in the colon and rectum. It involves various methods, including colonoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, fecal occult blood tests, and stool DNA tests, to identify abnormalities early when they are more treatable. Regular screening is essential for early detection and improved outcomes in the fight against colon cancer. The specific screening method and frequency may vary based on individual risk factors and medical guidelines.

Influenza 'Flu' Exposure

Influenza, commonly known as the flu, is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. Exposure to the flu occurs when individuals come into contact with respiratory droplets from infected people, usually through coughing, sneezing, or talking. It can also spread by touching contaminated surfaces and then touching the face, particularly the eyes, nose, or mouth. Flu exposure can lead to symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, body aches, and fatigue. Vaccination and good hygiene practices like frequent handwashing can help reduce the risk of flu exposure and transmission.


Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a progressive lung disease characterized by chronic inflammation of the airways and obstructed airflow, making it difficult to breathe. It typically results from long-term exposure to irritating gases or particulate matter, most commonly from smoking. Symptoms of COPD include coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and increased production of mucus. COPD can significantly impact a person's quality of life and requires ongoing management and treatment.
