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.
MetroBoston Clinical Partners specializes in clinical trials.
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.
