Studies Seek Patients: All Information


Clinical trials are research studies on humans that are designed to answer specific questions about vaccines or new therapies, to test new ways of using known treatments, or to find out more about a disorder. The National Institutes of Health has developed ClinicalTrials.gov to provide current information about clinical research studies. Before proceeding, you may want to learn more about clinical trials.
