Office of Clinical Trials Management
The mission of the Office of Clinical Trials Management is to further the excellence, scope and efficiency of clinical research activities at the Rowan University-School of Osteopathic Medicine.
What is a Clinical Trial?
In a clinical trial (also called an interventional study), participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or changes to participants' behavior, for example, diet. Clinical trials may compare a new medical approach to a standard one that is already available or to a placebo that contains no active ingredients or to no intervention. Some clinical trials compare interventions that are already available to each other. When a new product or approach is being studied, it is not usually known whether it will be helpful, harmful, or no different than available alternatives (including no intervention). The investigators try to determine the safety and efficacy of the intervention by measuring certain outcomes in the participants. For example, investigators may give a drug or treatment to participants who have high blood pressure to see whether their blood pressure decreases. (Source: clinicaltrials.gov)

MILESTONE STROKE STUDY
Walking problems following a stroke?
The MILESTONESM Study is looking at the safety and effectiveness of a potential new medication for the treatment of walking problems in people who have had a stroke.
You may be able to take part if you:
• are 18 years of age or older
• have had an ischemic stroke
• have walking problems as a result of the ischemic stroke.
The study will last about 5 months and will involve approximately 10 visits to a study center.
All study-related visits, assessments, and study medication will be provided at no cost to you. In addition, compensation for time and travel may be provided.
Coming soon: Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's Disease, Obesity, and Diabetes.
