Clinical Trials in Philadelphia

Clinical Trials.jpg

Clinical trials are carefully regulated and controlled studies that seek to find out specific information. These clinical studies can examine certain diseases, look for new diagnostics, or test new kinds of treatment.

While clinical trials can operate simultaneously across multiple location sites, they must also run under the same strict conditions. They must operate with the same purpose for the same amount of time.

Infertility clinical trials have greatly benefited the field of infertility and assisted reproductive technologies. Because of infertility clinical trials, new ffertility medications, diagnostics, and fertility treatments have been developed, which have made their way to local fertility clinics to help couples achieve their family-building dreams.

In the state of Pennsylvania, there are currently 16 infertility clinical trials that are currently seeking new volunteers. Of this number, 13 infertility clinical trials are being held in Philadelphia.
