Clinical Research

BreatheAmerica Clinical Research

BreatheAmerica is committed to improving the quality of care for its patients and their families and part of that commitment means offering our patients the opportunity to participate in clinical trials.

What is a clinical trial?

A clinical trial is a research study designed to answer specific health questions. Carefully conducted clinical trials are the fastest and safest way to find treatments that work in people and ways to improve health.

Why participate in a clinical trial?

Volunteers in clinical trials can play a more active role in their own health care, get access to new research treatments before they are widely available, and help others by contributing to medical science.

Who can participate in a clinical trial?

All clinical trials have guidelines about who can participate. These guidelines are based on things like age, gender, medical history and the types of medications you may be taking. There are clinical trials for adults, children, healthy volunteers and people who have a specific medical condition. Ask your provider if there is a clinical trial that is right for you.
