Finding Better Treatments And Cures

When it comes to drug development, the hurdle always seems to be access to the right patients. Whether it be finding enough patients of different ethnicities, or finding enough patients with a specific confluence of phenotypic markers, fitting a clinical trial protocol can present with many challenges.

Patients enrolled in our studies are closely monitored by our research physicians and coordinators. All study-related care and medication is provided to our patients at no cost. Dr. Folkens shares, “It is fulfilling to see the significant progress in the treatments of the diseases that we’ve studied. We’re currently engaged in more than a dozen studies that will continue to move us closer to finding these better treatments and cures.”
