Norton Healthcare Research and Clinical Trials

Norton Healthcare has a tradition of excellence in research and a continuing commitment to protect the interests and well-being of human participants. We are committed to practices for ethical conduct of human research, and we reaffirm this commitment through our policies.

For Patients

Many clinical trials involve testing new treatments, such as drugs or medical devices, to determine if they are safe and provide more effective care than an existing treatment. They also study side effects. Some clinical trials may test how diseases are diagnosed or study prevention of diseases and health issues.

Clinical trials follow many tests done in laboratories to test the effectiveness and safety of a therapy. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) then must approve trials in people.
