What is Hepatitis C?
Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) is an infection in which the virus causes inflammation of the liver. If left untreated, it can sometimes lead to serious damage to your liver. HCV spreads throught contaminated blood, and symptoms of HCV can take decades to appear in an individual, and therefore, many people don’t know that they are infected. There are a few treatment options for HCV, and a cure has recently been developed.
Hepatitis C Clinical Trials
We have many different research studies of Hepatitis C Virus (HCV) for patients with known diagnoses of HCV who have not found their current treatment to be effective or are willing to contribute to research. Patients who qualify for our HCV clinical trials may receive compensation for their time, see a board-certified physician at no cost to them, and have access to possible investigational medications.
What is the purpose of this clinical trial?
The purpose of conducting clinical trials for HCV is to determine the most effective and safe treatment options, and how those might apply differently to different individuals. Clinical trials are the method of translating research into new medicines and treatments that can provide new and improved patient outcomes. The lengthiest step in conducting clinical trials is often finding participants for the trials. The outcomes of clinical trials are one of the vital considerations of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s drug approval process. Without FDA approval, there could be no advances in patient therapeutics.
