Understanding Clinical Studies

Clinical studies evaluate investigational drugs to treat disorders or disease. Prior to their use, the medications are extensively studied in the laboratory. Furthermore, all federally regulated clinical studies must be approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB), which has primary responsibility to the patient.

Our physicians offer clinical studies to individuals in the Northeast area as a means of treatment that would not be available to that would otherwise not be available to them. Participation is entirely voluntary, and we adhere to strict confidentiality. Should you participate, most often all costs are covered, including physical examination, laboratory work, follow-up visits, and the study drug. In some studies, you may also receive financial compensation.

We are currently enrolling Connecticut volunteers for the following studies. If you are interested, fill out the form for the appropriate study, or, if you prefer, telephone or e-mail our office.
