Clinical trials are fundamental to the development of innovative medicines and devices that treat and prevent illness. The success of clinical trials depends on the participation of volunteers. Participants in clinical trials gain access to new research treatments not yet available to the public while helping others by contributing to medical research.
If you are a patient looking for information about clinical trials, VIVUS posts information about ongoing clinical trials on a government-mandated web page at www.clinicaltrials.gov, which is a National Institutes of Health registry of ongoing trials that are open and intended for patients with serious or life-threatening diseases. Registration of these trials in this registry is required by law.
