Additional care options

New study opportunities available

It can be discouraging to be told by your doctor that there are limited options available for treatment of neurological and other incurable conditions. But they may want to offer the opportunity of taking part in a clinical trial which is testing new treatments for a health problem. SiteRx works with your doctor to find a clinical trial in your area that you may qualify for. If your doctor is not a SiteRx member, use our Doctor Finder Tool and we can connect you with a new doctor who proactively talks about clinical trials as an additional care option.

Now enrolling studies for conditions such as:

  • Multiple sclerosis 
  • Dementia 
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Parkinson's disease 
  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NASH)

Taking part

What happens in a clinical trial?

Once you have decided to learn more about the clinical trial your doctor has referred you for, you will be contacted by a Patient Liaison who will give you more information about the program and schedule you for an appointment with the study team at the research center. They will go over the informed consent which explains the purpose of the study and possible risks and benefits. The consent also contains the schedule of the study and all the testing you will complete. If you decide to join you will sign the consent, but your participation will always remain voluntary. You are welcome to leave the study at any time.
