Clinical Studies

A clinical trial is a research study that tests new treatments for people with various health conditions (e.g., hypertension, diabetes, weight loss, musculoskeletal injuries, etc.) The goal is to find better ways to prevent or control, treat and care for patients with these health issues. Clinical trials test various types of treatments, including new drugs, new devices, new delivery systems and combinations of treatments, or new techniques such as gene therapy.

San Diego Sports Medicine and Family Health Center has been conducting clinical research trials for over 15 years. Our certified clinical research coordinators have over 30 years of clinical research experience in various health indications. We have been involved in many exciting research trials, enabling new medications to reach US markets and ultimately patients.

There are many reasons why people volunteer to participate in clinical trials, including:

  • Access to new treatments before they become widely available
  • Opportunity to play a role in the discovery of treatments and prevention of certain diseases or medical conditions
  • Ability to play a more active role in your own healthcare
  • Access to free physical examinations and diagnostic tests related to the clinical study
  • Opportunity to contribute to the advancement of modern medications and help people suffering from medical conditions
  • Potential compensation for time and travel related to the clinical study
