Columbus Clinical Trials

Clinical Trials.jpg

In Ohio, there are 10 clinical trials related to infertility that are either recruiting new participants, in progress, or recently completed. Of that number, three infertility clinical trials take place in Columbus.

Clinical trials operate in a controlled and strictly-regulated manner in order to study a particular health condition and learn ways to help improve the lives of those who suffer from it. These trials are extremely structured: each has a specific purpose, a set amount of time for which it will occur, and certain conditions under which it will operate. Often, these infertility clinical trials occur at multiple locations across the country.

Clinical trials are very important in the field of infertility study. Through these clinical trials, medications, treatments, and procedures have resulted that have bettered the lives of many people who suffer from infertility. However, it is also important to understand that since these trials are still experimental, there are risks involved. Talk with your doctor if you wish to participate in one of these trials.
