Clinical Trials


Medical advancements must undergo rigorous testing in the form of clinical trials before they can be made available for general use. Phase I and II studies assess safety. Phase III studies determine if new drugs are effective. Clinical trials represent the final stage of cutting edge science and medicine's pursuit of improved treatments.


NeuroNEXT Trials

The Network for Excellence in Neuroscience Clinical Trials, or NeuroNEXT, conducts Phase II studies of treatment for neurological diseases. The network is sponsored by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) and is comprised of 25 national clinical sites. Visit our website at www.neuronext.org.
