Clinical research is the scientifically accepted method for determining whether medications or devices are safe, tolerable, and effective to treat a specific condition. Clinical trials in humans occur only after evaluation of a treatment in the laboratory and in animal studies.
Through clinical trials, doctors find new and better ways to prevent, detect, diagnose, control, treat and cure illnesses. Clinical trials are dependent on the participation of volunteers, who join with scientists, to make advances in medicine possible.
We are committed to providing the highest quality of clinical research in Canada for the following conditions and more:
