Clinical Trials

What are Clinical Trials?

Clinical trials, also called research studies, are managed by government agencies, educational institutions, private not-for-profit organizations, or commercial businesses, to develop, produce, and evaluate the effectiveness of new treatments and therapies for diseases.  New trials are added on a routine basis, and many clinical trials accept only a limited number of participants.

Clinical Trials and Research at MUSC

MUSC participates in a large number of clinical trials. New trials are added on a routine basis, and many clinical trials accept only a limited number of participants.  If you are interested in treatment for a specific condition, search our clinical trials database often in order to review your options.
