What is clinical research?

  • A clinical research study is a medical study carefully designed to answer specific questions about a potential new treatment, such as how effective and safe it is, or the best dose is to give to patients.
  • All potential new treatments have to be tested in clinical research studies.
  • All clinical research studies are reviewed and approved by a group of people called an ethics committee (including healthcare professionals and members of the general public) before they begin.
  • If you take part in a clinical research study, your condition will be closely monitored throughout by a JWM neurologist and a team of research professionals.

Why participate in a clinical research study?

  • Despite the availability of current treatments there still is a need for more effective options to treat neurological conditions.
  • Clinical trials are offered free of charge and are provided under higher standards of care.
  • Clinical trials provide social interaction with the JWM clinical research staff, which in itself can be rewarding.
  • Clinical trials provide the opportunity to receive treatments before they are available.
  • Participating in clinical trials offers the opportunity to further the advancement of treatments that may be effective for future patients.
