Current open Norton Healthcare clinical trials
Current open Norton Children’s clinical trials
One of the most common ways for patients to participate in research is through a clinical trial. You and your provider will have a conversation to help you decide if being in a clinical trial is right for you. It is important to know that experimental treatment is not the path for everyone.
Clinical trials are research studies that assess the safety and effectiveness of drugs, medical devices and other treatments. They aim to determine whether a new treatment is better than current options. Additionally, clinical trials examine potential side effects.
Not all trials deal with treatments. Some may focus on making better diagnoses or ways to prevent health issues.
Before human clinical trials, therapies undergo numerous laboratory tests to ensure their effectiveness and safety. Subsequently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) must grant approval to conduct the trial on people.
At any time, Norton Research Institute is participating in more than 1,100 trials and studies involving more than 30 specialties. Our active research portfolio includes:
