Clinical Research Trials

What are Clinical Trials?

Clinical research trials are studies that evaluate how well a new medical treatment performs by testing it on a select group of patients. Clinical trials are conducted according to a protocol that describes the types of patients who may enter the study, the schedules of tests and procedures, drugs, dosages, the length of the study and how the outcomes will be measured.

Do I Qualify for a Clinical Trial?

If treatment for your disease isn't available or if the standard treatment hasn't worked for you, you might consider a clinical trial. Clinical trials can provide access to new or experimental treatments that otherwise aren't available. Each person who participates in the study must agree to the rules set out by the protocol. All our studies are performed under the guidelines of the FDA’s Code of Federal Regulations and ICH Good Clinical Practice Standards.

  • Hepatitis C
  • Hepatitis C Non-Responders and Relapsers
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Crohn's Disease
  • C-Diff
