Before medications are available to you, they must go through a series of clinical testing. Lehigh Center for Clinical Research is a part of that process. We conduct clinical trials by qualified physicians to evaluate investigational treatments for specific diseases.
If you qualify to participate in one of our clinical research trials you will receive:
- Free study medication
- Free examinations by a doctor
- Free medical procedures
- A stipend to help compensate for time and travel
Study volunteers receive free study-related medical care, investigational medicines, and a monetary stipend to compensate for their time and travel. When you volunteer, you have the satisfaction of knowing that your involvement may ultimately help other people. Due to all the progress made through clinical trials, many people with debilitating diseases are living longer and with improved quality of life.
For more detailed information about participating in clinical trials, please refer to the CenterWatch publication Informed Consent: A Guide to the Risks and Benefits of Volunteering for Clinical Trials. Recommended by the Institute of Medicine, Informed Consent has been featured in major health magazines, newspapers, national public radio and television.
