ENROLLING CLINICAL TRIALS


Harbinger
We are dedicated to bringing the latest advanced treatments and technology to our patients. Before a new treatment or procedure is approved by the Food and Drug Administration, it must go through many phases of clinical testing to prove it is safe for patients and helpful in treating a specific medical need. This testing takes place in the form of a clinical trial. Clinical trials with human volunteers are necessary to make new, possibly life-saving treatments available. Clinical trials may give you a more active role in your own health care or the care of a loved one.

The polio vaccine, the cardiac pacemaker, insulin therapies for diabetes, cancer treatments with fewer side effects, coronary stents and the human genome project - all medical milestones achieved because people just like you participated in clinical trials. What legacy can your participation in clinical trials leave for future generations?
