Our clinic’s primary goal is excellent patient care—not research. We limit our research involvement to clinical trials of promising new drugs that are unavailable from any other source. We do not get involved in research simply for the sake of doing research but in order to benefit our patients by having access to a greater number of treatment options.
Unfortunately, not all research drugs ultimately prove effective. Pursuing ineffective and unproven drugs, research or otherwise, can waste important time, time that could be better utilized by trying proven agents already on the market. It is a mistake to presume that a “new” agent available in a clinical trial will be beneficial. Patients need to be aware that at large clinical research centers doctors can be financially motivated to put patients on clinical trials.
