Accessing Clinical Trials

Accessing Clinical Trials

Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. Clinical trials can study new drugs or devices or combinations, new ways of doing procedures, new ways of using existing drugs or devices and new ways of changing behaviours. The goal of clinical trials is to determine if new approaches to treatment, prevention, and behaviour are safe and effective.

With no effective treatments approved for GA, clinical trials currently provide the best opportunity for people with GA to receive a novel treatment that could potentially stop or slow down the progression of their disease. It is important to note however that clinical trials may not be suitable for all people. Speak to your doctor if you are interested in participating in a clinical trial, to learn about options for participation and potential risks and benefits.

For further details on clinical trials of investigational GA therapies visit clinicaltrials.gov. This site provides the largest registry of clinical trials being conducted around the world, with tens of thousands of trials and locations in more than 200 countries. The site allows users to search by medical condition or other criteria for trials for many diseases and conditions. The site offers information about a trial’s purpose, who may participate, locations, and phone numbers for more details.
