Pittsburgh, PA Fertility Clinical Trials
Advances in in vitro fertilization (IVF) and preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) are what they are today thanks to clinical trials. Medical guideline updates, prospective causes of infertility, and infertility treatments are all developed as a result of clinical trials.
Infertility research is strictly monitored by the government and funding agencies to ensure proper treatment of human research study participants. Before a participant is recruited into the study, conditions of the study are explained to the participant and informed consent is given. Clinical trials may run simultaneously across the country as part of a large scale study, and examine a variety of topics.
