Clinical Research Q & A

What is clinical research?

Clinical research is late-stage medical research that involves people who participate in observational studies or clinical trials. 

Observational studies allow researchers to observe patients in normal settings. As a result, the researchers can gather information, identify characteristics, and monitor change over time. 

Clinical trials are studies that test medical, surgical, or behavioral interventions. These trials provide critical information about the effectiveness of a new medication or treatment. Clinical trials can also evaluate diagnostic tests and other types of health assessments.

Is clinical research safe?

There is an element of risk present in all medical procedures, even thoroughly tested and approved options. However, during a clinical trial, the Endocrine Associates of West Village PC team and the medical researchers take every step to protect your health and safety.

Clinical trials follow strict ethical guidelines and are monitored by an institutional review board (IRB). Ethical guidelines protect participants and preserve scientific integrity. IRB scrutiny ensures that the potential benefits outweigh any risks associated with the trial.
