Clinical research makes it possible for doctors and researchers to come up with new and enhanced ways that can be used to understand, treat, and improve skin appearance. Clinical research studies are used to find answers to difficult health or scientific questions. For instance, BOTOX® clinical trials in Chicago can be carried out to test a new cosmetic treatment, surgical procedure, or be used to establish what is causing people to get certain skin-related conditions.
All clinical trials and studies conducted by DeNova Research are directed by a number of guidelines. The guidelines help determine the inclusion/exclusion criteria for each study, helping figure out who can or cannot take part in a trial or research study.
The guidelines in place are based on factors such as exposure history, age, current medical conditions, medical history and the type of skin condition that the person may have. The criteria are employed to assist in identifying the right candidates, as well as in helping keep them safe. In addition, the guidelines also help make sure that the researchers will be in a position to answer the questions that are being asked.
There are clinical research studies that tend to be purely observational. Even though the participants may be asked to undergo various diagnostic procedures or to donate a blood specimen, there will be no treatment administered to them in a bid to change the course that has been taken by their skin condition.
When a clinical research study involves studying new medical devices, procedures, or drugs, then the study is referred to as a clinical trial. For instance, researchers may carry out a clinical trial to determine the effectiveness of a new BOTOX® treatment.
Clinical trials and studies are essential in determining what causes certain skin ailments and whether the new medicine and treatments being developed can help cure such skin conditions. Trials are also essential for developing new screening and diagnostic tests.
