Industry Sponsored Research
Clinical research at Gundersen vital to FDA approval process
For several years, Gundersen Health System has joined with other major medical centers to conduct research trials essential in determining the safety and effectiveness of new medicines and technologies. Many Gundersen departments have participated in these trials—among them Cardiology, Endocrinology, Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Pediatrics, Pulmonary, Rheumatology and Urology.
The Clinical Research department is self-supporting. All or most clinical trial-related costs such as clinic visits, laboratory tests, study drugs or devices and patient stipends for time and travel expenses are paid for with funds provided by the sponsoring pharmaceutical or medical device companies.
All patient participation in clinical trials is voluntary. Some patients volunteer hoping to benefit from a promising new medication or treatment that is not yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Most patients also are motivated by a desire to help others by providing information that could increase understanding and lead to better treatments.
