WHAT IS CLINICAL RESEARCH

Clinical Research is the study of an investigational drug or treatment to determine its safety and effectiveness in the treatment of a given medical condition. By participating in clinical research, you can help scientists develop new medications and other strategies to treat and prevent disease. Many effective treatments that are used today, such as cholesterol-lowering drugs, migraine medications, vaccines, and cosmetic injectables, just to name a few, would not exist without research participants. Whether you’re healthy or have a medical condition, people of all ages and backgrounds can participate in clinical trials. These trials are the primary way that researchers determine if a new form of treatment or prevention, such as a new drug, diet, or medical device (for example, a pacemaker), is safe and effective in people. Often, a clinical trial is designed to learn if a new treatment is more effective or has less harmful side effects than existing treatments. Here at Houston Center for Clinical Research we only offer studies that have been previously tested (Phase 2-4) and therefore deemed safe and reasonably effective by the FDA.
