Dallas, Texas Clinic Trials
There are currently three clinical trials that focus on fertility related issues in the Dallas, TX area. Two of them are at local hospitals and the third at a research program.
Clinical trials are carefully monitored, structured, controlled, and regulated research studies with the purpose of improving the health of the population being studied. They are done simultaneously in many locations. Clinical trials continuously evaluate the participants through various stages of the trial. There are risks associated with clinical trials but the information obtained helps advance knowledge about the causes of infertility. The goal is to increase the number of pregnancies and live births.
