Why participate in research

 

Research is an important part of what we do in CETAC to ensure the advancement of treatments for patients like yourself. There are many positive reasons to participate in research but there are NO OBLIGATIONS to do so.

 

When participating in a study, you will be closely cared for by a team of experts familiar with the most cutting edge treatments. Many research participants have reported back to us that they derive satisfaction in knowing they are helping to advance medical care by contributing to new knowledge. Many find that they gain more knowledge about their own condition and potentially benefit from treatment not yet available to other patients. In this section, we highlight some of our current research studies. Feel free to speak to your CETAC physician or the research coordinator about these studies.
