Clinical trials are research studies that examine the way different drugs or medical treatments affect people with certain conditions. Clinical trials strive to determine preventative measures for different diseases as well as ways to screen, diagnose, and treat them. In some clinical trials, two different drugs or treatments are compared to determine which is most effective.
Clinical trials are thoroughly regulated at every level to ensure that all patients involved are safe and experience as few undesirable effects as possible. Most clinical trials have been heavily studied in labs under a variety of conditions before they are ever conducted with people.
Patients of Dr. Raoof may be eligible to participate in clinical trials on eczema, psoriasis, and a variety of other conditions. Not all patients who wish to be involved will be chosen because each study has a specific set of parameters to meet.
