Clinical Research at CCC
Consultants is a private cardiology practice that conducts numerous FDA
regulated investigational medical studies in hopes of assisting with approval
for new treatment options in cardiology.
These studies are sponsored by pharmaceutical and device companies, as
well as government and educational institutions. Clinical Research Studies are conducted as part of the
process of obtaining FDA approval for new medical treatments, so that they can
be used by the public safely and effectively.
The CCC physicians have had a
dedicated Clinical Research Department since 1992. Research studies are conducted at all 3 office locations as
well as at local hospitals. The
commitment to clinical research has provided CCC physicians with the ability to
provide their patients with the most current and powerful treatments available
in cardiology today. The
department is staffed by a highly trained, experienced team of full-time clinical
research nurse coordinators and support staff who place patient safety and care
as their number one priority.
Research studies rely on volunteers
to test these new investigational treatments. In order to be eligible to participate in a study,
volunteers must meet specific criteria. The criteria help to focus the specific
medical population being studied, minimize variables and provide patient
safety. Clinical research study volunteers assist in the advancement of science
and help develop medical therapies that may someday offer better treatments for
future cardiology patients. At CCC, we consider our research study volunteers to be medical heroes.
