Clinical trials provide a controlled trial environment to evaluate if a drug (or procedure) is safe and effective. New standards of care, new drugs, and new medical procedures depend on clinical trials.
Patients who participate in clinical trials help advance treatment options for others with the same condition and help improve scientific knowledge for the medical community.
Each clinical trial objective is unique. Many diabetes clinical trials will measure changes in blood sugar levels from the beginning of participation in the trial to the end of participation. Other objectives may include measuring the effect of the investigational drug on body weight as well as other risk factors associated with diabetes, including heart function and kidney function.
All clinical trials have individual objectives and specific medical condition criteria for trial participation. To find out if your diabetes conditions match current clinical trial requirements, our online pre-screener provides a preliminary trial match. In less than 60 seconds, you can find out if a local trial requirement matches your conditions.
