Advancing Clinical Research

A clinical research study is a scientific investigation designed to answer important questions about an investigational drug, such as:

Is it safe?


Does it work?


Which dose works best?


What are the side effects?

This study is a Phase 1 study which is evaluating the investigational drug's safety as well as how the drug works in humans. All investigational drugs must be tested in clinical research studies before they are approved and available to be prescribed by doctors. Clinical research studies are also reviewed and monitored by an Institutional Review Board (IRB), which makes sure that the rights of participants are protected and that there are no unnecessary risks involved in the study.

Choosing to take part in a clinical study is a big decision. It's important for you to understand what the study is about, the potential risks, and what will be involved before you agree to participate.
