Clinical research is a key tool for advancing medical knowledge and patient care. It can be a win-win-win for all involved: for the companies looking for real world data to support approval of their treatments from regulatory bodies such as the Food and Drug Administration; it’s a win for doctors looking for new treatment options for diseases and conditions; and it’s a win for participants, who can benefit from cutting-edge therapies at no cost and sometimes years earlier than they’re generally available.

While you may have heard about “medical tourists” chasing treatments across the globe, gaining access to the groundbreaking work at the Clinical Research Center of Deborah Heart and Lung Center involves a trip to nearby South Jersey.

As one of the top ten hospitals in the country for clinical research in cardiac, pulmonary and vascular treatments, Deborah is currently enrolling participants for 30 different trials and is planning to expand its scope.
