About Clinical Research

Clinical Research Studies Aim to Advance the Treatment of all Conditions,Including Crohn’s Disease

The main objective of a clinical research study is to answer questions about the safety and effectiveness of potential new medications. These studies must be completed before a new treatment can be offered to the public. Right now, there are over 300,000 clinical studies in progress all over the world.

For each research study, researchers develop eligibility criteria, such as age, gender, previous treatment history, and other medical conditions. It is important to test medications and medical products in the people they are meant to help, and to conduct research in a variety of people because different people may respond differently to treatments.

Taking part in a clinical research study can offer several benefits including:
Getting actively involved in your own healthcare
Having access to potential new treatments
Having access to specialists in the condition being studied
Helping others by possibly progressing medical research
