What are clinical trials?
Clinical trials are research studies aimed at testing the effectiveness of new treatments, medications, vaccinations, and medical devices in people. They are the primary way that researchers find out if a new treatment, like a new drug or medical device, is safe and effective. Often a clinical trial is used to learn if a new treatment is more effective or has less harmful side effects than the standard treatment for a condition. When found to be safe and helpful, the studied treatments often become tomorrow’s standard of care.
Through clinical trials, doctors are able to identify new and better ways to prevent, detect, diagnose, control, and treat illnesses. Clinical trials are carefully designed, reviewed, and completed to ensure patient safety. Each study varies in length, eligibility criteria, and protocol, but participants work closely with doctors and medical professionals throughout the study process.
Participating in a clinical trial also allows volunteers to be among the first to know about new treatments before they are available to the public. Those who volunteer benefit from knowing they have helped to advance medical research into new treatments and help bring them to the public. Through clinical trial participation volunteers are not only being exposed to the most cutting edge treatments. They are also helping advance medicine for all by paving the way for future generations to lead healthier, happier lives. Major medical breakthroughs could not happen without the generosity of clinical trial participants.
Give our office a call or fill out your contact information online. An Artemis Research representative will be in touch to give you more information about our current studies and the clinical trial process. You will then conduct a quick, confidential
If you prequalify for a study, our recruitment team will schedule a virtual prescreen visit with one of our medical professionals. During the telehealth appointment, you will review your medical history and discuss the details of the research study, including the possible risks and benefits of the trial.
Doctor's Office Visit
The first office visit will consist of study related medical and/or psychological exams and an in-depth review of the study protocol, expectations, and procedures. During your in person office visit, you will begin the process for enrolling in the clinical trial and sign a study consent form.
The main purpose of clinical trials is research aimed at testing the effectiveness of new and existing treatments, medications, vaccinations, and medical devices in people. Clinical trials are carefully designed and regulated by study sponsors and executed by our team to add to medical knowledge and medical advancements related to the treatment, diagnosis, and prevention of diseases or conditions.
These trials are the primary way researchers find out if new treatments are safe and effective for the public’s use. The research on new treatments and devices is how we develop new standards of care and prevention!
One of the biggest reasons individuals participate in clinical research studies is to play an active role in their own health. Other people participate because they have exhausted their treatment or are dissatisfied with their current treatment options and they want to help researchers find more effective solutions than what is currently available.
Participating in a clinical trial also allows you to be among the first to find out about new treatments before they are available to the public. Regardless of your motivation, your contribution to scientific discovery will help others and pave the way for future generations to lead healthier, happier lives.
Research is the number one method in uncovering new information about diseases and therapies. Your participation in a clinical trial could help in the development of new medical treatments.
Study participants will receive financial compensation for their time and travel, medical evaluations with a doctor and medical professionals, and the study medication, treatment, vaccination, or device at no cost! Insurance is never required to join a trial.
Each study has specific risks or side effects depending on the medication or treatment being studied. Our medical team will thoroughly discuss these with you during your visit. Our study investigators are all medical doctors that are first and foremost concerned about your safety, health, and wellbeing. Participation in a trial is always voluntary.
