PinnacleHealth: Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies to examine the safety and effectiveness of medical treatments or devices for people. They are one of the final steps of a long and careful research process.

As scientists develop new medical therapies, clinical trials help to evaluate if the treatment may work for all patients with a particular condition or just for some subset of patients. Studies may also determine that the new treatment offers no better results than established options.
