Clinical studies continue during the COVID-19 pandemic

The majority of clinical studies continue to move forward during the COVID-19 pandemic. Study teams are working closely with participants to ensure patient safety while meeting trial goals for successful clinical research.

Most healthcare facilities remain open in most areas, however many of them have changed their hours and have new procedures to ensure safety for trial participants.

Some study doctors may suggest televisits (phone or video call) so that patients can still attend scheduled visits without having to leave home.

If you are currently enrolled in a clinical trial, be sure to speak with your doctor about the status of your study and discuss any changes that have been put in place due to the novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2.

Participating in clinical research

Clinical research is vital to the development of new medical treatments. Clinical research is the study of medical conditions in people, which enables researchers to gather valuable knowledge to advance medical insights around the world. Without clinical research trials, advances in healthcare and medical treatments would not be possible.
