What is a Clinical Trial?
A Clinical Trial, Research Study or Protocol all mean the same thing. Before a medication can be sold for the general use in the United States, it must meet stringent guidelines and standards set by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). To meet these standards, a potential drug or medical treatment goes through several phases of testing (often over several years) with individuals who volunteer to participate in the clinical trial or research study. Every prescription drug, medical device and new medical treatment in the United States has been through this testing process. Each clinical trial involves hundreds and sometimes thousands of volunteers. Without volunteers for clinical trials there would be no NEW medical treatments, medical devices and prescription medications.
Rhode Island Mood & Memory Research Institute (RIMMRI) is always looking for new patients to help further the development of new medications. We specialize in Alzheimer's Disease Research. RIMMRI is offering the new study trials and always looking for volunteers so check back often!
We bring together patients, researchers, and sponsors, facilitating the development and study of cutting edge medical treatments. RIMMRI specializes in Central Nervous System (CNS) clinical trials which include Alzheimer's Disease and Major Depressive Disorder clinical studies.
