Clinical Trials

The physicians and staff at Eastern Urological Associates strive to remain abreast of advances in medical treatment of urologic conditions. Part of our commitment to this is by participating in national recognized clinical trials. The EUA staff has been active in clinical trials since 2004. Clinical trials are used to determine whether new drugs or treatments are safe and effective, as well as offering patients the opportunity to have access to such treatments prior to them being available to the public.

Participating in a clinical trial is different from receiving routine medical care. Trial participants are monitored very closely by EUA’s clinical research staff. Our mission to our study patients is to treat them like family, and offer them a specialized level of care that they would not receive in routine medical care. Patient safety is our utmost priority, and our clinical trial participants have 24 hour access to study staff. It is important to consider that some trials may not directly benefit the study participant, but can help to further medical knowledge and improve medical care for future generations. Our staff is happy to discuss trial options with you, and provide you with resources to assist you in deciding whether clinical trial participation is a good option for you. Trial participation is voluntary.
