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)

EMR200136-573 : The purpose of this research trial is to compare how easy or difficult it is for patients to give themselves injections of Rebif® 44 mcg using the two different autoinjectors three times a week. The research trial is testing the devices in the treatment of a relapsing form of multiple sclerosis (MS). Both trial devices (autoinjectors) are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of multiple sclerosis and are being tested for patient preference. Each device administers Rebif®, a medication which is also approved by the FDA for the treatment of MS.
Current fibromyalgia pain treatments don't work for everyone. So we're conducting ALDAY - a medical research study to evaluate a potential new option. The study will last approximately 21 weeks and all study-related assessments and drugs will be provided at no cost to you (study-related time and travel costs may also be reimbursed). To learn how you could help shape the future of fibromyalgia care please call us at 856-566-6003.
Coming soon: Studies in Stroke, Alzheimer's Disease, Obesity, and Diabetes.
