What Are Clinical Trials?
Although there are many definitions of clinical trials, they are generally considered to be scientific and medical research studies designed to find better ways to treat or prevent diseases.
The clinical trial process depends on the kind of trial being conducted. The Sound Medical Research team includes doctors, medical assistants and research coordinators. They check the health of the participant at the beginning of the trial, give specific instructions for participating in the trial, monitor the participant carefully during the trial, and stay in touch after the trial is completed.
Some clinical trials involve more tests and doctor visits than the participant would normally have for an illness or condition. For all types of trials, the participant works with a research team. Clinical trial participation is most successful when the protocol is carefully followed and there is frequent contact with the research staff.
