Help discover the next breakthrough medical treatment | Health
Without clinical trials, the drugs that millions of people rely on to treat or cure disease would not have become available. Clinical trials examine the safety and effectiveness of new treatments in people, and this research plays a key role in developing ways to prevent, detect and treat disease.
Many people may not be aware that they can volunteer to participate in clinical trials, an endeavor that has the potential to advance scientific breakthroughs while helping people around the world live healthier lives. Today, more than 425,000 such research studies are underway in the United States, according to the National Institutes of Health.
