Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate new treatments. All new treatments must undergo three phases of clinical trials before applying for FDA approval and becoming available to the public.
Through clinical trials, eligible patients can try new treatments, including drugs, medical devices, and treatment protocols, with close medical monitoring.
Cranford L. Scott MD, Inc established a dedicated clinical research office called Chrishard Medical Group in 1986. Under the leadership of principal investigator Dr. Scott, the Chrishard Medical Group specialists screen patients for clinical trial participation.
If you’re interested in taking part in clinical trials, let Dr. Scott know at your next appointment. He can answer your questions and tell you whether you’re a good fit for any scheduled trials.
Not to worry if you’re not right for any trials at this time. After expressing your interest, Dr. Scott keeps you in mind for new clinical trials. New clinical trials start all the time, and many focus on the most common chronic conditions affecting American adults today.
Each clinical trial is different based on the type of product or treatment. After acceptance into the trial, you’ll have a baseline visit at the office. During that appointment, you’ll undergo some tests, and Dr. Scott will explain what you need to do and when you need to come to the office.
Clinical trial care is separate from your routine medical care. You’ll still need to come in for regular wellness visits, along with sick visits if you develop any kind of medical problems like the flu or COVID-19.
Participating in a clinical trial helps you become proactive about your medical care. It allows you to try the newest and most advanced treatments long before you’d usually be able to try them.
By participating in a clinical trial, you provide invaluable information about new treatments that can help shape not only your life but those of many other patients.
