The following are sites that connect patients to clinical trials. Clinical trials are controlled drug/device testing environments conducted on disease states that have no current treatment or try to improve upon a current treatment.

This is not an endorsement for any of these sites or any particular clinical trial but rather serves as another resource for physicians to explore options for their patients. Please remember that these trials have both benefits as well as risks.

ClinicalTrials.gov
This site is developed and maintained by the National Library of Medicine at NIH. It contains updated information on a variety of clinical trials that are sponsored by NIH, federal agencies and academic medical institutions. Users may enter geographic or descriptive search terms and a list of open clinical trials along with eligibility criteria and contact information shall be provided.
