At ADC, we offer patients the opportunity to participate in the most recent advancements in dermatological treatments. We pride ourselves on providing high-quality, innovative care to all of our patients. Clinical trials give us the opportunity to come face-to-face with the latest revolutionary treatments. Clinical trials are research programs that evaluate the development of new treatments, drugs, and medical devices. During clinical trials, participants receive the highest-quality care while each doctor evaluates the new treatment. After evaluation, we may then determine whether the treatment is as effective as other treatments currently on the market. Each trial treatment is thoroughly tested in a laboratory setting before being introduced to humans. As with any new treatment, there may be potential risks and side effects. Your board-certified dermatologist will inform you of any issues that may arise due to your participation. Additionally, we will help you assess these risks to determine if you are an eligible candidate for a trial. There are also advantages to participating in a clinical trial. Other than receiving the latest treatments, you may also be contributing to valuable medical research. This may spur the development of new procedures and treatments down the line. As a qualified participant, you will receive study-related medications, products, and examinations at no cost. You may also qualify for compensation for time and travel. The goal of all trials is to grow and develop knowledge that improves human health. To ensure each patient’s health and safety, each clinical trial follows a code of ethics and regulations. These regulations prevent volunteer participants from exploitation and guarantee the integrity of the scientific data collected through the study. If you’re interested in participating in a clinical trial, call our office today at (301) 610-0663. We can determine whether you are eligible for our current trials.
