About Clinical Trials
A clinical trial is a carefully designed research study that investigates the effectiveness of a specific treatment for a particular group of people. Well designed clinical trials are the fastest way to find treatments that work. Participants are closely monitored by knowledgeable, experienced physicians (investigators) and health care professionals (clinical research coordinators).

What to Expect
While each clinical trial is different, you generally will work with a health care team that includes a doctor and a research coordinator. This team will follow a research protocol where all participants in an assigned group get the same tests and treatment. The team will check your health, carefully monitor you during the study and follow up after the study. It's important to take all prescribed treatments and keep all scheduled visits.
Participants may be assigned to a group that receives a placebo (an inactive treatment) or an existing treatment instead of the investigational treatment, to help determine its effectiveness. In this situation, you will receive the same careful medical attention. To avoid bias, your doctor may not know which treatment you are receiving.
Enrolling in a trial is strictly voluntary and you may withdraw for any reason. For more information or to enroll in a study, visit Clinical Trials at Chesapeake Urology.
