Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Clinical Research Trial?
Clinical research trials are used to test and evaluate investigational drugs and treatments. Before a new investigational drug or treatment can be considered for approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it must be shown to be both safe and effective. A carefully monitored clinical research trial is the best way to find out if a new treatment is safe, effective, or better than what is already available.
Are Clinical Research Trials safe?
Trial participants are protected through a series of safeguards, including a careful study protocol and rules enforced by the federal government. A clinical trial is carefully designed, completed, reviewed and receives approval from an Institutional Review Board, or a group of scientists and doctors chosen by a health care center where patients will be enrolled. Many trials are also supervised by a Data and Safety Monitoring Committee made up of experts who check the results of the study throughout its progress. If a treatment does not work or causes any harm, it is stopped immediately.
What are the benefits of participating in a Clinical Trial?
  • Patients in clinical trials receive study-medication, tests and exams at no charge throughout the course of the study.
  • Participants have access to new investigational treatments long before they are made available to the public and receive closer monitoring than they would receive during standard treatment.
  • Patients in clinical trials also have the unique opportunity to contribute to the advancement of medical research. Your participation in a clinical trial can affect and greatly improve the treatment of medical conditions for generations to come.
How can I enroll in a Clinical Trial?
Please review our list of current and upcoming studies. If you are interested in participating in a particular trial, please contact Skin Care Research for further information and preliminary screening to see if you are eligible. If it is determined that you are an eligible candidate for the trial, a visit will be scheduled where the study coordinator will meet with you and explain the trial in detail, the procedures that need to be followed and answer any questions that may arise. This process is called informed consent and is essential before any volunteer is enrolled in any clinical trial.

This screening visit is also an opportunity for the study coordinator to obtain a full medical history from the participant. He or she may also perform a physical exam and schedule any laboratory tests that may be necessary before participation in the study can begin.
