Clinical research is a branch of health sciences and refers to all research done on human beings. It is the brain of all advances in medicine. It focuses on improving knowledge of diseases, developing new treatments, diagnostic methods and medical devices.

The clinical research studies that are also known as clinical trials are the main reason behind all groundbreaking innovations of drugs and devices in a medical field. Clinical research studies are the only way to find new and safe ways to prevent, detect, treat or cure the diseases.

Spanish galleon on calm and blue sea

It all started on 20 May 1747, James Lind (A Scottish Naval surgeon) conducted the first clinical trial on scurvy diseased naval sailors on the sea of Salisbury. 12 crew men, who were suffering from a Scurvy disease, were divided into 6 groups of two. They all received the same diet in addition to as follows:

Group 1: quart of cider daily,
Group 2: five drops of elixir of vitriol (sulfuric acid),
Group 3: six spoonfuls of vinegar
Group 4: half a pint of seawater
Group 5: Two oranges and 1 lemon Group 6: spicy paste plus a drink of barley water.
Group 1,2,3,4 and 6 remained sick with the scurvy disease while the group 5 recovered quickly.

This was the first ever documented clinical study in a medical history.

Clinical research trials are conducted in a series of 4 phases:

At Canadian Centre for Advanced Eye Therapeutics, Inc. we have highly qualified clinical research team that follows strict rules & regulations of FDA and Health Canada. We monitor our study participants very closely and patient’s safety is our priority.

We have a long history of conducting clinical trials. Our world-class doctors are keen in advancing treatments for eye diseases and provide the best and the most up to date standard of care treatment to the patients.

We conduct several studies for different medical conditions and diseases related with the eyes throughout the year. However in order to participate in a study the participant must qualify and meet the strict criteria of the study protocol. If your medical condition matches the criteria of any ongoing study that you may qualify, most likely you will be offered a study on your next clinic visit.

The study is thoroughly discussed with the patients and enough time is given to think about it. We only enroll the patients who agree voluntarily to participate.
