Utah clinical trials are regularly being conducted to determine whether promising new treatments will be safe and effective for patients. Participants in clinical trials can gain access to new research treatments before they are widely available, play a more active role in their own health care and help others by contributing valuable information to medical research.

Jean Brown Research, along with many other research facilities often have trials that are specifically for infants and children.  If you are considering having your child participate in a clinical trial here are a few key questions you may wish to discuss with the medical research team:

 

Why is the pediatric research study being done?
What is the goal of the pediatric research study?
How long will the clinical research project take?
Are there risks associated with this particular medical research?
What are the benefits expected from the clinical trial?
