What are clinical trials?
Clinical trials are research studies that are conducted in order to learn more about a particular disease or condition. These trials provide the opportunity to gain understanding of the disease in order to improve prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment.
Participants in clinical trials have the opportunity to contribute to medical knowledge that will help save lives of other children and adults. Clinical research would not be possible without volunteers. Research today means a cure tomorrow!
Individuals with cancer and heart disease provide blood samples so that researchers can find better markers for the treatment and diagnosis of their disease. However, patients' blood samples need to be compared to blood samples from healthy individuals in order to determine which markers are normal and which are not. To be able to do this work we will need a large number of blood samples.
