Clinical Trials

Why should I (or my child) participate in a clinical trial?

Participating in clinical trial has the potential to help both the individual participant and other individuals suffering with CLAs. Participation in clinical trials also allows you to:

  • play a more active role in your care;
  • gain access to potential treatments before they are widely available;
  • receive expert medical care at leading healthcare facilities — often free of cost — while participating in important medical research; and
  • help future generations by contributing to CLA research.
