What is a clinical study?

A clinical trial is a research study conducted according to a specific protocol created by our research team to determine if a new drug, device, or procedure is safe and effective for patients. The new treatment is compared to existing available treatment to identify which is more effective. Data is collected under supervision of the FDA and an independent Investigational Review Board (IRB). This data is then submitted to the FDA for review and approval.
