Clinical trials FAQ

Medical research relies on information obtained from clinical trials. Your decision to volunteer for a clinical trial should be discussed with your family physician and family members before proceeding. Below are some commonly-asked questions regarding clinical trials. For more information, please call our office in West Palm Beach at (561) 600-4848.

What are clinical trials?

Clinical trials are controlled tests. The medical industry uses this method to determine the safety and effectiveness of certain drugs, cosmeceuticals, and devices. Clinical trials give doctors information necessary to develop better treatment regimens with improved patient safety, as new medications and techniques are introduced.

Why be part of a clinical trial?

New advances in treatments are discovered and perfected through clinical trials. As a participant, you have access to these innovative treatments before they become available to the public.

Who can participate in a clinical trial?

Each study sets forth specific criteria for participants. These standards may include (but are not limited to) age, gender, medical conditions, current medications, and previous treatment history.

What clinical trials are currently available at Research Institute of the Southeast?

Our site lists numerous ongoing trials, and new ones are added frequently. You can learn more about the various clinical trials currently available on our Enrolling Studies page. Or call our West Palm Beach office at (561) 600-4848.
