Clinical Trials & Research
Rex Healthcare and its affiliated physicians are dedicated to providing the best in health services by bringing together compassionate care and leading edge technology. Through clinical trials, we can actively contribute to improvements made in medical science.
A clinical trial is a test or study of a drug or medical device in people. These tests are done to see if the product is safe and effective for use. Doctors and other health professionals run tests according to strict rules set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA sets these rules to make sure the participants who agree to be in the studies are treated as safely as possible.
Current medical therapies and technologies are constantly being evaluated for areas of improvement. These potential advances in medical science are dependent on clinical trials. The results from clinical trials provide vital information towards determining whether the new advances are safe and effective prior to being placed on the market. Feedback received from the participants who volunteer is crucial to understanding how the therapy works in people of different ages, races and genders.
Both Oncology and Heart & Vascular diagnostic trials are underway at Rex Healthcare:
