Clinical Trials

Ongoing Research Activity

A clinical trial is a research study where volunteers receive a new medical intervention, including a drug, device or procedure, to test if that intervention is safe and effective. The information gathered during a clinical trial is used to improve existing treatments or make new treatments available.

There may be risks and/or side effects associated with participating in a clinical trial. A member of the research team will describe all known risks prior to consent and participation. All research conducted at Children’s has been reviewed and approved by an ethics committee.

Clinical trials are sponsored by government agencies, medical centers, pharmaceutical companies and device manufacturers.
