Have you ever wondered how the medications you take get from the planning stages to your local pharmacy?
At Eclipse Clinical Research we partner with pharmaceutical companies to perform the clinical research studies. The purpose of these studies is to look at the safety and effectiveness of different medications. Some of these medications are brand new and some of them have been available for many years. Every medication available for purchase, in the United States, has to go through studies like these. For a more in depth look at the clinical research process, have a look at How Research Works.
Eclipse strives to provide exceptional care to all of our patients in a friendly and informative environment. We understand that every person is an individual, and work hard to ensure that every participant has a pleasant and positive experience. Patient safety is our highest concern, prior to study entry, all of our patients go through a rigorous screening process to make sure that there are no underlying medical conditions or medications that would jeopardize their health by participating in a study. We also encourage all patients to discuss the study with their personal physician, and allow us to communicate with them throughout the study process.
All clinical trials rely on people, like you, to volunteer as research patients. This volunteer status holds for the duration of study participation, and means a participant can stop at any time for any reason throughout the study process. Volunteering in a clinical trial allows regular people to participate in innovative and often cutting edge medical science with the potential to relieve suffering, prevent infection, or even cure disease. Without volunteers there is no way to get new treatments, procedures, or medical devices to the market place where they will benefit people who need them.
We can’t do this without you!
We are always looking for volunteers to participate in our studies. There is no cost to participate, we do not accept insurance and do not charge for study medication or any study related exams or procedures. In addition to the medical care provided through study participation, patients may be compensated for their time and travel. Please check out the FAQ page for more about participation and compensation.
