For Patients

Facilitating your access to clinical research

A. Why Clinical Research?

Every life-changing medical discovery begins with a clinical trial.

Our clinical trials are research studies designed to answer scientific questions and find better ways to prevent, screen for, diagnose or treat particular medical conditions. Our trials will evaluate these medical, surgical, or behavioral interventions. Researchers will use the data you provide us to find out if a new treatment, like a new drug, diet, or medical device (e.g. pacemaker), is safe and effective for people. PRX Research offers access to cutting-edge medical care and medications not yet available in the market.

B. What to Expect

What Should You Expect When Participating in a Clinical Research Study?

Did you know?

Have you ever been sick and been prescribed medication by your physician? You have directly benefited from clinical research! The medications, therapies, and procedures that are available today are available because of prior clinical trials.

What Are Clinical Trials?

1. Our clinical trials are research studies designed to answer scientific questions and find better ways to prevent, screen for, diagnose or treat particular medical conditions. During our trials, we will evaluate these surgical, medical, and behavioral interventions. Researchers will use the data that you provide to find out if a new medical treatment, including drugs, diets, and medical devices (like pacemakers), is safe and effective. PRX Research offers access to cutting-edge medical care and medications not yet available in the market.

2. At PRX Research, we are committed to the health and safety of our patients. Participants in our clinical trials have a unique opportunity to contribute to medical discovery, treatment, and research. Our participants are educated on the relevance of the study as it relates to the management of their conditions and overall health. They are also provided with quality care from our team of expert doctors and clinicians.

3. Pharmaceutical companies, universities, and other healthcare organizations rely on PRX Research for quality data and medical oversight for clinical trials.

How it Works

Participating In a Trial is Easy

Find a clinical trial

Getting started with a clinical trial is easy! We offer numerous clinical trials in different specialties. Please contact us to see what we’re offering. We’ll ask you some questions to determine what studies you’re eligible for and if there’s a study you might be eligible for, we’ll schedule an appointment with one of our physicians.

Physical Assessment

Visit our site and get a complimentary physical exam. We’ll answer any questions you have about participating in one of our clinical trials.

Start Participating

Participating in the clinical trial can begin once you’ve been considered eligible and agree to participate with the study procedures.

frequently asked questions

Participating in a clinical trial gives you access to the latest in techniques and medicines. You receive personal attention from some of the top health care providers in the country. And by participating, you are helping to improve health care for everyone.

YES! All information including medical, history of illness, personal and any information obtained during the study is confidential and protected by state and federal regulations governing clinical research. We will not release your personal information to anyone without you specifically authorizing us to do so

YES! In nearly all of our trials, we will reimburse you a flat fee for your travel expense for each office visit. The reimbursement rate varies per study and will be discussed with you in detail on your visit to the office.

  1. A written examination about the content of clinical research and ethical responsibility of the researchers.
  2. Preclinical studies that show that a new investigational treatment is safe and effective in laboratory animal tests.
  3. Use of strict protocol – an outline prepared before the beginning of a study that describes exactly what will take place during the trial.
  4. A written description of all the information that you will need to make an informed decision about joining a clinical trial. The process of giving you this information is called an informed consent.

Researchers must make two types of decisions about whom they study for a clinical trial, inclusion criteria and exclusion criteria.
Inclusion criteria are those characteristics that everyone must have to join the trial. For example, in a study of a medication for people with diabetes, all study participants need to have diabetes.
Exclusion criteria are those characteristics that people cannot have if they want to participate in the study. For instance, in a study of medication to prevent heart attacks, people who have already had a heart attack might be excluded.

Each clinical trial is different.
Upon qualification into the study, this information would be provided to you.

We have an excellent staff with a wealth of experience, knowledge and familiarity in clinical research; however, only our board-certified doctors will provide you with medical assessment and advice.

You can expect to be given a very thorough explanation about the clinical trial and to have all your questions answered by the study doctor and his staff.
You will be given an informed consent form to read and sign. This is required by law to make sure you understand what is involved in the trial. The consent form will include a discussion of the potential risks and benefits, and will have information about the schedule and duration of the trial, and the name of the study doctor whom you can call with questions or problems. You can also expect to have an evaluation of your condition and to be given the diagnosis by the study doctor.

Many clinical trials test a new investigational drug against a placebo, which looks just like the drug but doesn’t contain any active ingredients (like a sugar pill).
Other clinical trials test two different drugs to determine which is more effective. If it is a randomized trial, participants are randomly assigned by computer to the drug or the placebo. Because researchers have no say in the decision, the process is fair for everyone. However, randomization also means the researchers cannot guarantee what you will get if you enter the trial. Only the medication companies have this information in order to efficiently determine outcomes.
Some trials compare different drugs or different doses to learn which is most effective. The study participants are randomly assigned to one drug and do not know which medication they are taking.

Nothing!
All medical care, including tests and medications related to the clinical trial, is provided at no charge.

You can leave a clinical trial at any time for any reason.
An important safeguard in a clinical trial is your freedom to leave. The informed consent document that you sign does not force you to remain in a trial. Clinical trials may offer you suggestions about how to leave the trial, particularly if the trial medication needs to be withdrawn gradually, but you have the final decision. If you leave a clinical trial, it may be helpful to let the researchers know why you are leaving, but this is not required. This information may help researchers improve the clinical trial process for other participants and may make the results of the trial more reliable.
