People Looking Through Microscope.Clinical Research Types

Because medical research is always changing, our menu of current clinical trials is also very fluid. We frequently have trials for both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes as well as diabetic neuropathy, diabetic nephropathy (kidney disease), hypertension, high cholesterol, and obesity.

Our goal is to provide safe and effective clinical trials offering the newest investigational products and technologies while keeping our subjects engaged and providing the best care available.

Patient Participation

Not only does our researcher participation in clinical trials further the knowledge of disease and its treatment, but our patients have a chance to contribute to these exciting trials as well. By participating in clinical trials, our patients can receive novel treatments not yet available to the public. They are also part of the momentum fueling the growing knowledge base regarding a variety of diseases, including both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.  This leads to more effective treatment for all who suffer from these diseases.
