Medical Research Studies in West Des Moines, IA

Trial Types

Volunteers in our medical research studies do not need health insurance to participate because all procedures and medications used are provided at no cost. Some studies offer compensation to cover the time spent at our facility.

Phase I, II, III and IV Studies

At our company, we conduct clinical trials in four different phases. This allows us to tailor the study to be more useful and accurate.

During Phase I, researchers test an experimental treatment on people who have never had the treatment before. This allows us to see how the body responds.

In Phase II medical research trials, one group of participants is given an experimental drug and another group receives a placebo. By having the control group take a placebo, researchers can gather comparative information about the effectiveness and safety of the drug. This information is provided to the pharmaceutical company and the FDA.

About 33% of experimental drugs and treatments pass through Phases I and II. After they do, they are tested on a large group of people in Phase III. This phase monitors side effects and gives researchers a better idea of how effective the treatment is. This phase can last for years. Once complete, the pharmaceutical company can take the information to the FDA and get approval for their marketing.

Phase IV involves post-marketing medical research. This phase gives pharmaceutical companies the opportunity to monitor the treatment’s long-term effects, compare it with other treatments on the market, and determine its cost-effectiveness.

Patient-Focused Medical Research

All these phases allow us to bring volunteers benefits throughout the clinical trial process. Each participant’s safety is of utmost importance. After all, we’re here to help, not hurt.

Some studies have certain criteria, including age, sex, type and stage of disease, other medical conditions, and previous treatment history. This gives us more relevant data and helps keep you safe during the trial.

Research Subject Criteria

Some studies seek subjects with illnesses or conditions, while others need healthy participants. These criteria are set according to:

•  Age
•  Type and Stage of Disease

•  Gender
•  Previous Treatment History

• Medical Conditions
