Patients

MetroBoston Clinical Partners specializes in clinical trials.

Clinical trials are studies conducted to determine the effectiveness and safety of medications or other treatments in treating diseases. They are a critical step in getting FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approval for the use of new treatments for the general public. These new treatments often help patients immensely.

When a study becomes available patients contact us and they are “screened” to make sure that they are appropriate for the study. If a patient is eligible for a study the patient is given extensive information on the risks and benefits of the study.
