Atlanta, GA, Clinical Trials
Clinical trials are important in the field of emerging medicine, since they test new medications, procedures, and treatments that can become helpful to a generation of people who suffer from certain disorders. Clinical trials are strictly regulated and controlled, and test a particular variable during the duration of the trial. They may occur simultaneously throughout different locations to utilize a larger sample size.
The infertility field has benefited from discoveries made throughout clinical trials. If you are interested in taking part in a clinical trial, it is important you discuss it with your doctor. There are risks involved, because the trials are still experimental.
Currently, there are a number of infertility clinical trials taking place in the Atlanta area at hospitals, university research centers and fertility clinics. Some of these include:
- A comparison of Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) and standard visible white light laparoscopy for the detection of endometriosis
- Effectiveness of the use of the PICSI Dish in the selection of sperm for Intracytoplasmic Sperm Injection (ICSI)
- The impact of polycystic ovarian syndrome on quality of life and health care beliefs
- Evaluation of the efficacy and safety of the progesterone gel DR-2011 for in vitro fertilization
- Sperm banking among adolescents newly diagnosed with cancer for development of a profiling and referral tool
