Clinical Research Studies Held in Reno, Nevada

Advanced Research Institute holds regular clinical trials at our Reno, Nevada, location to test the efficacy of new drugs. If you live in the Reno, Nevada, area, you may qualify to participate in one of these studies. Bringing new pharmaceuticals to market is an important step in treating and managing today’s most debilitating diseases.

Are Clinical Trials in Reno Safe?

While no medication is 100% safe for everyone, before people are allowed to participate in clinical trials for new drugs, the drugs must undergo a battery of tests. These include extensive laboratory tests as well as tests on animals such as rats.

All clinical trials to be conducted on humans also must first be approved by the Food and Drug Administration. The studies are meant to see whether the drugs are effective to treat the condition they are intended to treat.

Studies at Our Reno, Nevada, Facility

Our clinical trial company does studies for nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, irritable bowel syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux disease, nonerosive reflux disease, diabetes, celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and other diseases.

Many of the conditions we test drugs to treat have great impact on the lives of those who suffer with them, and some are even fatal. Most of the people diagnosed with the above diseases must follow fairly strict diets as well as careful drug regimens. Yet, they still may suffer from nausea, gas, bloating, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain and other symptoms that can cause them to miss work, school, and family and social obligations.

What Happens During a Study?

Volunteers are chosen based on their age and medical condition. Throughout the study, which usually continues for a number of weeks or months, volunteers are examined regularly by a physician. They may also be given tests such as endoscopies or colonoscopies.

Volunteers are given the new drug to take and asked to track information such as severity of symptoms, change in symptoms, diet and other relevant factors. The results of the study at our clinical trial company will be combined with other studies on the drug to determine whether it is effective.

What Do I Get for Participating?

Our volunteers are not paid; however, they do receive free medical care for the duration of the study as well as the opportunity to try a new, possibly groundbreaking, drug. Neither patients not their insurance companies are billed for their participation in the clinical trial.

You also get the satisfaction of knowing you helped others suffering from an illness or condition by assisting drugmakers with bringing the new drug to market.
