About Clinical Trials

Clinical research trials are essential for the advancement of medicine. Federal law requires all marketable medication to go through a series of clinical trial phases before they can apply for FDA and Independent Research Ethics Board (IRB) approval.

Clinical Trial Phases

The goal for phase I clinical trials are to determine if the drug is safe people, what is the right dose, and how is it processed in the body.

Phase I

Phase II

After safety is determined in Phase 1 the next step is Phase 2 studies and patients will receive the highest safe dose of the experimental drug.

Phase III

After phase 2, researchers determine if this new drug works better than current medications. If it is more effective, then application for FDA approval is submitted.

Phase IV

After the drug receives FDA Approval, in phase IV studies long-term safety is determined and side effect management is improved. 

Why participate in a clinical trial?

Some join a trial because the treatments they have tried for their health problem did not work.  By being part of a clinical trial, participants may find out about new treatments before they are widely available. when you choose to participate in a clinical trial, you become a partner in scientific discovery. And, your contribution can help future generations lead healthier lives.

Here's what happens in a trial:

  1. Clinical research coordinators explain the trial in detail and gather more information about you.
     

  2. Once you have had all your questions answered and agree to participate, you sign an informed consent form.
     

  3. You are screened to make sure you qualify for the trial.
     

  4. If accepted into the trial, you schedule a first visit (called the “baseline” visit). The researchers conduct psychological and/or physical tests during this visit.
     

  5. You are randomly assigned to a treatment or control group.
     

  6. You follow the trial procedures and report any issues or concerns to the research site, Innova Clinical Trials.
     

  7. You may visit us at regularly scheduled times for new psychological, physical, or other evaluations and discussions with staff. At these visits, the research team collects information about effects of the intervention and your safety and well-being.
     

  8. You continue to see your regular physician for your usual health care throughout the study.
