About Clinical Research Studies
Clinical Research Studies Are the Key to Advancing Treatments for All Conditions, Including Alzheimer’s Disease.
A clinical research study is designed to answer questions about the safety and effectiveness of potential new medications. These studies must be performed before a new treatment can be approved for use in patients and sold to the public. Right now, there are over 300,000 clinical studies in progress all over the world.
For each research study, researchers develop eligibility criteria, such as age, gender, previous treatment history, and other medical conditions. It is important to test medications and medical products in the people they are meant to help, and to conduct research in a variety of people because different people may respond differently to treatments.
