CentraState Medical Center is proud to offer eligible patients access to promising new developments in the treatment and prevention of medical conditions such as cancer and chronic pain through our participation in clinical trials. Clinical trials are studies designed to test new therapies, medicines, or medical devices in humans after they have been fully tested in the laboratory and in animals but before they are available to the general public.

The clinical trials offered at CentraState are the same as those offered at major health care centers nationwide, and they are managed by specialists who hail from some the finest medical institutions in the country.

Although clinical trials and other forms of research have led to significant improvements in the medical field, patient safety, privacy, and rights always take precedence. That’s why the federal government requires that every institution that conducts medical research with public funds must establish an Institutional Review Board (IRB).

CentraState’s IRB ensures that biomedical and behavioral research is conducted ethically at our facility and complies with federal rules and regulations for the protection of trial participants. The IRB reviews studies before and during research to protect patient rights and welfare. Our IRB has 10 members with relevant medical, scientific, and social services backgrounds. Two are community members with no other ties to CentraState Medical Center. In addition, there are five designated alternate IRB members.

Clinical Trial Criteria - CentraState Hospital

Patients must be referred to a clinical trial by a participating trial physician. If you and your physician believe you fit the criteria for a clinical trial, contact us and we will set up an evaluation appointment with a participating physician.

Clinical trials have specific eligibility criteria. A participating trial physician and our clinical research nurse will work with you to determine if you meet them.

Clinical Trial Process - CentraState Hospital
Clinical trials are tightly controlled. They require a significant commitment from the participating medical team and their patients. To determine the effects of the therapies, medicines, or devices being studied, patients must be monitored closely. Ongoing physical exams, diagnostic imaging studies (such as X-rays), and blood tests may be part of the trial process.
Clinical Research - CentraState Hospital
In addition to overseeing the administrative components of the trial and serving as the liaison between the medical center and the trial sponsor, CentraState’s clinical research nurse works closely with patients and their families to help make the trial process flow smoothly. She helps patients understand informed consent forms, coordinates appointments, documents results, answers questions, and provides support and guidance throughout the research process.
