Clinical trials are research studies involving humans. Many entail new treatments and techniques for addressing various diseases, illnesses, and health conditions. Others may require only data collection by questionnaire and a simple cheek swab. Hundreds of active clinical studies and trials are in progress across Partners institutions.
Every clinical trial has a plan for how it will be conducted, and each study has rules about who can participate. Some studies need healthy people, while others may be looking for people with a certain disease. The design of each trial is reviewed and its process is monitored to ensure that the risks are small and are worth the potential benefits.
See information below about finding clinical trials at Partners HealthCare.
You can also find information about clinical trials being conducted in the United States and around the world at www.clinicaltrials.gov, an interactive online database, managed by the National Library of Medicine that provides information about clinical trials in human volunteers.
Harvard CATALYST, in which Partners institutions are important participants, is represented in researchmatch.org, a web site where you can register to receive information about research studies going on around the country.
