Volunteers needed for clinical trial

CERRITOS - Pioneer Medical Group is searching for volunteers to take part in clinical trials studying high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease."In clinical studies, new drugs are typically compared to a standard therapy," said Sanat Patel, M.D., head of Pioneer Medical Group's research program. "Volunteers receive investigational treatments under the supervision of a physician and have the opportunity to receive new - and potentially more effective - medical treatments." Each clinical study is monitored by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Pioneer Medical Group physicians. Volunteers receive free medical care, medication and possible compensation. For more information about volunteering in a clinical research trial, call (562) 867-8681, ext. 1646.
