A clinical study, also known as a trial, is carefully designed to test the effects of medication, medical treatment or device in a group of volunteers. Clinical studies are an important step in making new medication available; they measure a drug’s ability to treat a condition, its safety and its possible side effects.
During a Triad Dermatology clinical study, patients see doctors and nurses frequently. Physical examinations and medications are normally provided at no cost. Patients may be compensated for travel and other expenses.
