Clinical trials are used to determine the safety and efficacy of new drugs or treatments. Sarkis Clinical Trials offers a variety of adult and children’s psychiatric trials in the greater Gainesville area, to help treat conditions such as:
- ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER (ADHD)
- BIPOLAR DISORDER
Participating in a clinical trial allows the individual to play an active role in their own healthcare, gain access to new treatments before they become widely available, and contribute to medical research.
What is a clinical trial?
A clinical trial is a health related research study in human beings that follows a pre-defined protocol to investigate new treatments and/or observe outcomes of specific interventions such as medications, therapies, or treatments. Throughout the study participants are regularly seen by physicians to monitor their health and determine the safety and effectiveness of the treatment being studied.
Why participate in a clinical trial?
Clinical trials offer an alternative to traditional treatment options by offering access to cutting-edge treatments before widely available to the general public. They also permit participants to play an active role in their own health care while contributing to medical research. Qualified participants receive study medication, testing, treatment, and doctor’s visits at no charge. Many participants also receive reimbursement for their time and travel.
