CLINICAL TRIALS SPECIAL PROCEDURES
Urological Associates of Southern Arizona, P.C. has participated for the past six years in clinical trials for major pharmaceutical companies. These clinical trials are urology related trials for medications for diagnosed urological problems. Participation in these trials has maintained Urological Associates of Southern Arizona, P.C. on the cutting edge of new technology.
The patients for these clinical trials are strictly volunteers, and are asked to participate from the current patient base of Urological Associates of Southern Arizona, P.C. The response from our patients selected for these trials has been positive, with patients indicating this to be a valuable service.
Urological Associates of Southern Arizona, P.C. participates in many clinical trials. We do this for two main reasons; first, we want to give our patients as many options as possible to treat their condition. Sometimes, patients have exhausted the traditional standard of care approach for their condition. Trials provide us additional options to help our physicians manage our patient’s conditions. Second, participating in clinical trials helps keep our physicians on the forefront of advances in clinical treatment approaches in Urological Care.
