Are you considering joining a clinical trial? A clinical trial is a way to test an innovative treatment in people before it is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). You should discuss participation in any clinical trial with your healthcare team to ensure that an experimental treatment is right for you.
The American Diabetes Association does not list or promote specific clinical trials (unless the trial is being supported by the American Diabetes Association Research Program). This policy also applies to patient surveys. There are far too many trials and surveys being conducted at any given time for the Association to be able to evaluate them on an individual basis. However, the following resources from the Food and Drug Administration and the National Institutes of Health provide more information about clinical trials and how to determine which trials are being conducted in a location near you.
