At Syrentis Clinical Research, we conduct clinical trials. Clinical trials are research studies that test medical strategies, treatments, and devices to ensure they are safe and effective for humans. Clinical trials follow strict scientific protocols which protect patients and produce reliable results. A clinical trial may improve patient outcomes, offer no benefit, or cause unexpected harm or side effects. All of these results are important because they advance medical knowledge.
Call us to discuss the potential risks and benefits of participating.
Every participant in a clinical trial is provided a detailed explanation of the study which includes the nature of the study, the treatments to be used, and the potential risks and benefits. It is important to understand that some participants may receive a placebo, which is an inactive substance or treatment. This will be explained to you during the informed consent process. We always encourage you to discuss your participation in a clinical trial with your healthcare provider.
Participants may receive access to new treatments before they are widely available. You may receive treatments, tests, procedures, and expert medical care at no cost to you. Your participation helps advance medical knowledge for future generations.
The treatments and strategies being tested aren’t always better than those that currently exist or that you already may be receiving. Some treatments may benefit most people but not you. A new treatment may have side effects or risks that researchers don’t know about or expect.
