What are clinical trials?

Clinical trials are medical research studies involving the testing of investigational medicines on specific conditions. At Synexus we work in the hope of improving those conditions for the future of others.

People tend not to give much thought to how treatments have been made available to them, but everything from aspirin to chemotherapy has been carefully tested before being prescribed by your doctor.

Clinical trials are designed to carry out testing of new medication, existing medications used differently or alongside another medication or treatment. At Synexus we focus on what’s known as ‘late phase’ clinical trials. These studies look into the affects the medicines being studied have on the conditions they were designed to treat and all will have undergone some earlier phase testing.

There is simply not enough evidence to know if a treatment is both effective and safe without trials, there is a risk that people will be given treatments which do not work and which may even be harmful. We have many different clinical trials to suit many different treatments and conditions, the results of which are helping to ensure a healthier future.
