Find Clinical Trials

New tests and treatments aren’t offered to the public as soon as they’re made. They need to be studied. Clinical trials study how safe and helpful tests and treatments are. When found to be safe and helpful, they may become tomorrow’s standard of care. Clinical trials can study many things, such as:

  • New drugs not yet approved by the U.S. FDA (Food and Drug Administration)
  • New uses of drugs already approved by the FDA
  • New ways to give drugs, such as in pill form
  • Use of alternative medicines, such as herbs and vitamins
  • New tests to find and track disease
  • Drugs or procedures that relieve symptoms
