Years of research is conducted on each new medication or device prior to it being introduced in larger phase II or phase III clinical trials. Before it even gets to a phase II or phase III level it must have passed rigorous safety tests and met effectiveness checkpoints along the way.
If you have ever taken a prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) medication, your life is being touched by clinical studies and its patient participants. Through the clinical research process, medications, medical devices, and vaccines are developed for those who need them most.
Patient participants volunteer to assist researcher doctors in testing the safety and efficacy of medications and devices. By participating, you enable countless others to benefit from your efforts. Most of Physician Research Group’s research trials will pay you for your time, travel, and/or mileage.
