Charleston Clinical Trials
Clinical trials are controlled studies that test a certain variable in relation to a disease or condition. Carefully regulated, these studies can occur in multiple locations across the country under set conditions. Each clinical trial has a set purpose, runs a set amount of time, and operates under certain conditions.
Clinical trials have contributed much to the field of medicine, especially to the infertility subset. New treatments, medications and procedures have been developed, and new information has come to light that gives doctors a better understanding of the infertility diagnosis and treatment.
Currently, there are five infertility clinical studies that are operating in South Carolina. Of these studies, one is occurring in the Charleston area.
If you are interested in joining a clinical trial, be sure to talk to your doctor first about the risks involved.
