The leader in medical research, NEA Baptist Clinic brings more new and important clinical trial opportunities to Northeast Arkansas than any other healthcare provider. A clinical trial is a research study conducted with volunteers to answer specific health questions. Carefully conducted clinical trials are the fastest and safest way to find treatments that work and improve patient care.
Benefits of Clinical Trials:
- New and improved treatment options for patients
- Fewer side effects
- Latest treatment options close to home
- New standards of care
- Free medical care (non-oncology studies only)
- Reimbursement for time and travel may also be provided.
Patients take part in clinical trials for a number of different reasons. Some of the reasons include hope for themselves, a way to feel better, a longer time to live, or the knowledge that they are making a contribution that could help another person. Patients that participate in clinical trials are sometimes the first to receive and benefit from a new medication that is not yet available to the general population. Patients that participate in clinical trials are also monitored carefully during the trial and in the follow-up period.
