What’s a Clinical Trial?
Clinical Trials? What does that name even entail? In this article, we want to
shed light onto what goes on past the doors of Medical Research Group of
Central Florida. We want to explain to you what we do and why we do it. We hope
this article will help you understand why community contributions and
volunteers for the type of work we do is so important.
clinical trial is a research study that involves real people. It is the
last step in the research process that begins in the lab. The purpose of a
clinical trial is to test the effectiveness of a new treatment method for
persons suffering from any type of medical condition. These trials are
important because they help researchers and doctors discover new ways to better
treat their patients. Without clinical trials, our doctors would run into the
same roadblocks with old and outdated treatment methods.
drug and medication ever prescribed has gone through the clinical trial
process. What first began in a lab under a microscope, transitioned into a
clinical trial facility, where the drug was administered under professional
supervision to patients who stood possibly to benefit from it’s consumption.
Drugs as common as Tylenol, Advil, Tums, Claritin, Vyvanse etc. have all passed
through the clinical trial phase before making it into our homes. This goes to
show the importance of a clinical trial.
trials can be created and submitted by three different categories of
researchers; a university, a private research facility or a governmental body.
Every clinical trial that is submitted goes through a rigorous evaluation
process. They must be carefully reviewed to ensure that not only will no human
rights be violated, but also that the outcome of the clinical trial will
generate results to help researchers understand how to better treat people
suffering from a specific condition. Not every clinical trial that is submitted
makes it out to the public; they can be extremely costly and so each is
meticulously examined before the researchers start enlisting the help of
for a clinical trial to work, there has to be many aspects of it that work
together. For example, there must be an approved facility, licensed and trained
employees, medical professionals who administer the treatments and perform
evaluations, and lastly, volunteers. These volunteers are the lifeline of our
work, and of every clinical trial conducted. A clinical trial requires people
who have a certain medical condition, and who are willing to help determine
novel treatment methods.
should any of what we say about clinical trials matter to you? Because your
help is crucial to our work, and our work is necessary for future patients’ treatment.
The support of volunteers is what we need so that new medications and treatment
methods can be created. If you have any questions please contact us at 386 775
