Clinical Trials for Movement Disorders
Clinical trials are research studies that explore newer treatment strategies for patients who are no longer responding to current treatments or who are eligible for a new therapy approach.
Data collected throughout the course of a trial helps develop a deeper understanding of the disease continuum and depending upon your condition, we may recommend participation in a clinical trial.
Clinical trials differ from a doctor’s office visit where the goal is to diagnose and treat the disease with established therapies. Rather clinical trials use of new therapies, current treatments used in an innovative way, or new surgical procedures. An Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval is always obtained prior to activating a study weighing the risks and benefits of a study. The IRB ensures that the clinical trial is conducted in accordance with all federal, institutional, and ethical guidelines.
Ask one of our specialists if you are eligible for a clinical trial protocol.
