Learn About Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are scientific research studies that involve people. Their overall goal is to improve endocrine health and health care by answering specific questions about how to better prevent, detect, and treat endocrine diseases. Many of today’s most effective prevention and treatment methods were tested and proven in clinical trials and are now accepted as the “standard of care.”
