What is a clinical research study?
A clinical research study is a medical study tailored to answer questions about the safety and effectiveness of potential new medications. A clinical study helps to understand how a new medicine works on people.
A good number of clinical trials are also conducted on existing medications( already on the market) in order to collect valuable information with regards to safety, optimal dosage and efficacy.
“Why should I or my child participate in a research study?”
First and foremost, all the drugs that we are currently benefiting from have been approved solely as a result of successful clinical trials. Secondly, during a clinical trial the patient will acquire a lot of knowledge with regards to their asthma. We will share a lot of our findings with you and help you better understand the proper management of asthma. We would like to help you with making that decision: please feel free to email us and call us (see details above).
