Here are some of the current studies for which we are seeking volunteers. Please call with any questions or to inquire about upcoming studies:
All of our clinical studies are conducted in strict accordance with protocols that have been reviewed by the FDA along with an Institutional Review Board representing the public interest. Once a study has begun, its’ progress is closely monitored by each of these agencies. Participants are evaluated frequently throughout the course of the study to document effectiveness and safety of the medication. Participants may withdraw from the study at any time, or they may be withdrawn if the investigator feels that it is in their best interest to do so.
Before any new medications are approved, they must go through a series of lengthy and rigorous tests. Each year billions of dollars and millions of man hours are spent researching new methods for the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses and diseases. A new medication must not only be shown to be safe and effective, but in many cases it must also demonstrate a superior benefit when compared to similarly approved drugs. Pacific Research Network is proud to be an industry leader in this field.
