Clinical Trials and Research
At Central DuPage Hospital, we continually strive to provide our patients with quality care and treatment. Part of that effort involves approving clinical trials – controlled research studies created to answer medical questions about new therapies or new ways of using existing treatments. Clinical trials, and the patients who participate in them, help shape the future of medicine.
Why is Clinical Research Important?
Clinical research can lead to significant medical discoveries that benefit the health of everyone. Clinical trials can result in:
- Improved treatment medications
- Better diagnostic and medical procedures
- New vaccines
- Lifestyle changes to help prevent disease
- New approaches to surgery
- Improved cancer therapies
- Ways to enhance the quality of life for patients with chronic illnesses
