Clinical research studies (often also called trials or protocols) are a method of developing new treatments and/or medications for diseases and conditions.
“The health of millions has been improved because of advances in science and technology, and the willingness of thousands of individuals like you to take part in clinical research. The role of volunteer subjects as partners in clinical research is crucial in the quest for knowledge that will improve the health of future generations. Without your help, the research studies at the Clinical Center cannot be accomplished.” (Provided by NIH, National Institute of Health)
No. Medical insurance is not required to participate in any clinical studies. If accepted for the trial, participants are provided study medication and medical care by our board certified/board eligible doctors and staff.
No, there are no costs associated with participation. Participants that meet all study criteria are eligible to receive compensation for time and travel related to participation. Compensation varies from study to study.
Some studies compare the medication being tested in one group against another group taking a placebo (a look-alike pill or tablet that has no active ingredient). You will be told if there is a placebo involved in the study you are considering enrolling in so you can make an informed decision about whether to enroll in the study.
A board certified or board eligible medical doctor and/or highly trained clinical research staff work together to provide you with medical oversight throughout your participation in the study.
We have multiple facilities in the Tampa Bay area to include one Phase 1 Unit and Outpatient Research Site in Clearwater and one Outpatient Research Site in Tampa. See the About Us page for additional address information.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has strict guidelines and regulations that help ensure the safety of clinical trials. The FDA is an agency of the United States government charged with, among other things, the oversight of the development of investigational drugs and medical devices. According to the FDA, “Carefully conducted clinical trials are the safest and fastest way to find treatments that work in people and new ways to improve health.”
The commitment to a clinical trial varies from a few weeks to up to several years. You will be told during your initial visit exactly what is expected of you during the trial, so you can make a decision about whether or not you want to continue with the screening process.
You may participate in one clinical trial at a time. A 30 day wait period is typically required before enrolling into another clinical trial.
We are continually adding new studies. Contact us if you don’t see the indication that you are interested in and we can check our pipeline of upcoming studies and/or add you to our database to contact once we have something that meets your needs.
We maintain a HIPAA compliant database that is only used by CRWF to identify potentially eligible patients for current and upcoming clinical trials. Should you not qualify for a current study, we will confirm that you would like to be added to our database, and we will contact you when something applicable is available.
“I have been involved in multiple studies at CRWFL. Every person I have encountered there has been kind and professional. I would absolutely recommend getting involved in a study there. It has been my pleasure to be included in the studies there.”
“I love going to CRWF. The staff are so friendly they make you feel like one of the family not just a subject. I’m so happy and lucky to be chosen to for the family. Thank you to all staff for making me always feel welcome and comfortable.”
“It has been my pleasure to be included in the studies to aid in solving the problems of C.O.P.D. I have participated in numerous said studies since 2004.I can truthfully say each and every study was conducted with absolute professionalism. The staff is beyond reproach in the performance of their duties. They are all extremely pleasant and more than willing to help,in any way they can,either their patient or each other. I have recommended their services to many others and will continue to do so.”
“I recommend CRWF to everyone I have encountered with similar medical impairments. I hope to continue receiving treatments as long as possible in the future. I am proud to announce that I now ride my bicycle between 5-10 miles each morning to help myself too. I couldn’t have done this without CRWF help.”
“I have participated in a few studies conducted by CRWF, including COPD. This is a well trained professional staff that is cordial, accommodating and perhaps most important, the facility is clean, quiet and affords folks like me privacy while any testing is going on. Great, Great staff!!
“Recently, I completed a study with Clinical Research of West Florida. Prior to starting, the full study was thoroughly explained. The staff was always very competent and friendly on every visit . They worked with me on scheduling to insure no inconvenience. The medications and medical coverage was a major assist in my decision to participate in this particular study. I would highly recommend the Clinical Research of West Florida.”
