Clinical Trials

6187996_lPatients who volunteer to participate in observational studies and clinical research trials make it possible for new drugs and therapies to be developed. From observational studies to clinical trials, you can help researchers unlock the secrets of Primary Hyperoxaluria.

By participating in a clinical trial, you may benefit by

  • gaining access to new treatments that are not yet available to the public
  • obtaining expert medical care at a leading health care facility
  • playing an active role in your own health care
  • helping others by contributing to medical research
  • Clinical trials are usually grouped into “phases.” Clinical trials in each phase are designed to answer certain questions, while trying to make sure the people taking part are kept as safe as possible. Every new treatment is tested in 3 or more phases of clinical trials before being considered reasonably safe and effective.

For information on studies in Primary Hyperoxaluria and Secondary Hyperoxaluria, go to ClinicalTrials.gov, a registry and results database of publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants conducted around the world.
