Clinical Trials

A clinical trial is a research study that allows volunteers to receive treatment with a drug or device currently under research testing by a pharmaceutical or biotechnology company. These companies carefully select qualified physicians who serve as "investigators” to lead the study trials.

Arkansas Children's offers opportunities to the community to participate in many studies. Use the search fields below to review the current available studies.
