What is a clinical research study?

A clinical study is research designed to test new investigational drugs, or to test for expanded uses of currently approved drugs, devices, or procedures to see if they work and are safe.

What are the benefits of participating in a clinical study?

Each study is different, but benefits of participation may include:  Access to medication/medical care from specialists who know your condition, laboratory services, the opportunity to receive a medical treatment that is not widely available, and the knowledge that you are helping advance medical science.


Why are Clinical Trials important?

Almost all medications available today have gone through a clinical trial. We now have effective treatment for hundreds of diseases due to patients participating in clinical trials!

What can I expect when I participate in a Clinical Trial?

In a clinical research trial, researchers may study the safety and effectiveness of new investigational drugs. Some patient volunteers may take investigational medication, while others may take an inactive drug, which is called a placebo. You will not know if the drug you take is actually study medication or a placebo. Whether you are taking the investigational drug or the placebo, it is important to remember that, here at PABR, we monitor your health and wellbeing closely throughout your participation in any of our trials.

What do we do?

Here at PABR, we understand your concerns and want to find the best treatment for you that is available. During the course of a study, we perform physical examinations, laboratory studies, ECGs, and administer various psychiatric and neurological tests and questionnaires. Our research services are provided at no charge to you or your insurance company!!!
