At the NeuroCognitive Institute, we want to ensure that all of our patients are aware of and have access to clinical trials as a possible treatment option.
Clinical research is a critical pathway in the development of new diagnostic tools and more effective treatments for patients. Historically, clinical research, which is sometimes referred to as clinical trials, has been conducted at academic medical centers. If your doctor was not affiliated with these centers and not aware of these trials, you, like most patients, would not have considered treatment options through a clinical trial. At NCI, all of our patients are aware of and have access to clinical trials as a possible treatment option for their central nervous system related condition.
We have a newly renovated clinical research unit at NCI. Here, we study promising new diagnostic and treatment options with our patients and their family members. The clinical research unit is managed by Exodon, a leading clinical research organization. Our clinical research unit offers all the latest safety equipment and medications. In addition to our clinical neuroscientists, the CRU is supervised by doctors and nurses trained in critical care and internal medicine. Our clinical research unit is an integral part of the comprehensive clinical services we offer to our patients with cognitive, neurobehavioral and neuropsychiatric disorders.
We are here to help. Contact us now to learn more about our current clinical trials that you or your loved one can volunteer in.
