The Nebraska Medical Center participates in a variety of clinical trials to test new, investigational drugs or to study new ways of using known treatments. By researching the latest and most innovative procedures and therapies, we can provide patients access to the newest treatments.
Participants are able to take a more active role in their own healthcare, gain access to new drugs and treatments before they become widely available, and help other patients by contributing to medical research.
Once patients have been evaluated and approved for transplant, they may be eligible for participation in a clinical trial. Patients deemed eligible to participate in a clinical trial will have the opportunity to review the study protocol to determine what is expected. The protocol will list details including the schedule of tests, procedures, medications, dosages, schedule of doctor appointments and the duration of the study.
More information on any sponsored study is also available at www.clinicaltrials.gov.
