Clinical Trials

Our primary goal and focus at Women’s Health Advantage is to promote the overall well being of women.  One way we do this is through clinical research of specific health issues related to women.  Women’s Health Advantage takes part in clinical trials that are on the cutting edge of medical advancement. 

What’s Involved?

A clinical trial is a study where your participation as a patient is needed to test the effectiveness of new drugs, devices and innovative methods of treatment.  After treatment and testing, these products may be approved for general use.  Women’s Health Advantage takes part in Phase II – III – IV clinical trials.
 
Our extensive electronic medical records system allows us to easily determine your eligibility for participation in any given trial.  We welcome women of all races, ethnic and economic groups. 
 
Our ethical research is conducted in a timely manner, by a specially dedicated team of physicians and support personnel who maintain Standard Operating Procedures that follow Good Clinical Practices guidelines.
 

Why Should I Participate?

By participating in a clinical trial, you make a very valuable contribution to medical progress and advancement.  Plus, you play a role in the advancement of medical treatment for all of our patients.
 
Our patients and medical staff gain firsthand knowledge of promising new drugs and medical devices.  It also allows us access to otherwise unobtainable medications for our patients.
