The faculty of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology conduct clinical trials of new drugs or treatment design to help develop advances in medicine that will deliver more effective treatment to patients with infertility, complications of pregnancy, cancer and menopause.
By participating in a study, participants have access to promising new drugs or treatments, and the expertise of a physician trained in treating the particular disease. You will receive expert medical care and be carefully monitored throughout the trial. While there are risks involved with your treatment, you will have an opportunity to learn about the study and these associated risks and to ask questions before agreeing to participate.
All studies are conducted under the review and direction of the Colorado Multiple Institutional Review Board, or an equivalent review board, which oversees and monitors the study. There is a rigorous review process before a study can be open to enrollment. In addition, there are study sponsors, such as the National Institutes of Health and the Gynecologic Oncology Group, which sponsor trials that have enrollment locations throughout the nation. Our physicians participate with these groups to bring these studies to you.
There are specific enrollment requirements for each study which include age, type and stage of disease. Your previous treatments are also important in determining eligibility.
