What are clinical trials?
Clinical trials are often conducted as part of the development of new medications, procedures, or therapies. This is the end-stage testing to determine the safety and degree of effectiveness for new drugs or treatments before FDA approval. Clinical trials are conducted with approval from the Clinical Research Committee, the Hospital Board, and the University of Georgia Research Foundation. Your pet will be monitored closely during the trial and receive excellent clinical care.
The University of Georgia works with various other research institutions and sponsors in conducting clinical research trials. The outcome of this important research benefits the entire veterinary community as safer, more effective treatments are developed as a result of new technology and ultimately made available to area veterinarians for the treatment of pets.
