All clinical trials conducted at Medical Consultants are performed under required FDA safety and ethical guidelines and are reviewed and approved by a Institutional Review Board.
Benefits of Participating in a Cardiology Clinical Trial
Patients who participate in clinical trials help to answer questions about new drug or device treatments. Questions such as safety, tolerability and effectivness of the treatment are being studied. Patients enrolled in a clinical trial receive the highest quality of care. The research physician and coordinator will monitor them closely during the study and in the follow-up after active treatment is complete. Patients also contribute to the future of medical research and participate in decision making in their health care treatment.
