At any given time, there are hundreds of thousands of clinical research studies in progress around the world. Each study seeks better ways to prevent, diagnose or treat certain medical conditions. ENA’s nationally recognized Clinical Research Center conducts a wide range of studies regarding kidney health, hypertension, diabetes, and many other conditions.
Studies are crucial to improving medical care. They answer questions about the safety and effectiveness of potential new medications, treatment options or devices, and must be completed before even the most promising new treatment can be prescribed to the public.
No study is possible without patient participation. It’s important to test medications or devices with the people they are intended to help, so studies may require patients who match specific criteria such as previous treatment history and medical conditions.
