Clinical Research

Clinical ResearchClinical research is an important part of the process by which a medication becomes approved by the FDA for a particular disease or condition. It also allows the manufacturer to compare the benefits of a medication already FDA-approved to other similar medications on the market. The safety of these medications has already been established. The type of clinical trials we do at Arizona Pulmonary Specialists, Ltd. test the medication for effectiveness.

When you participate in a clinical research trial, you may be helping a medication get FDA approval. You may also be able to get access to a treatment when perhaps no other treatment is available. Study medication and study-related medical care are generally provided free of charge.

At Arizona Pulmonary Specialists, Ltd., we may have research studies for the following conditions at any time:

  • Pulmonary Hypertension
  • COPD
  • IPF
  • Bronchiectasis
