Clinical Research QA
What is clinical research?
Clinical research consists of studies that evaluate the effectiveness of new, cutting-edge medications and other treatments that may help you better manage a disease or reduce unpleasant symptoms. Arena Care and Wellness can help connect you with clinical research opportunities.
Why is clinical research important in health care?
Clinical research evaluates the safety and effectiveness of new drugs. Such studies are vital before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) can approve new medications. Patient participation in clinical research is essential to providing available treatments to fight or prevent disease for everyone.
What are the benefits of clinical research?
The advantages of participating in clinical research include opportunities to receive free treatments and cutting-edge treatments not yet available to the general public. Clinical research offers opportunities to try new medications that could work better than others currently approved by the FDA.
Such research allows you to take part in ground-breaking studies that may offer more effective solutions to managing difficult-to-treat medical conditions. New treatments seek to improve on existing treatments you might find lacking.
Is clinical research right for me?
Arena Care and Wellness determines if participating in clinical research is the right decision for you. If you’ve tried other treatments without success, or you’re simply interested in trying cutting-edge treatment options, clinical research is an opportunity to do so.
To learn which studies you may be a match for, your Arena Care and Wellness provider discusses your medical history, lifestyle, medications, symptoms, and more. They also complete a physical exam and may order blood testing or other diagnostic tests.
If you have an illness, disease, or another medical condition that hasn’t responded well to traditional treatments, your provider may recommend considering clinical research.
They review the risks and benefits of clinical research with you and suggest which studies might offer you the most benefits. The decision to participate in research studies is entirely up to you. Many patients choose clinical research medications if other options haven’t worked well for their condition.
