About Clinical Research – The ENVELOP Study

About Clinical Research

Clinical research studies, also called clinical trials, help researchers and doctors to find out if an investigational medication (a medicine or drug they are studying) works, in addition to helping them to determine how it works and the safe amount for people to take.

These studies must be carried out before a new medicine can be approved for doctors to prescribe to their patients. Right now, there are more than 300,000 clinical studies in progress all over the world.

For each clinical 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 on the people they are meant to help. For this reason, it is important to do research with people of all races, ethnicities and genders, because different people may respond differently to treatments.

Taking part in a clinical research study can offer several benefits, including:

Playing an active role in managing your own health

Having access to investigative research treatments

Having access to specialists in the condition being studied
