PDtrials is New and Improved!
- Aug 22 2008
A relaunched website, www.PDtrials.org, can help you and your family members learn about clinical trials — the phase of research so vital to developing new therapies for Parkinson’s disease (PD).
Originally launched in 2004, the site lists information about over 60 clinical trials for Parkinson’s across the US that are currently enrolling participants. The newly redesigned site will make it easier for potential participants, including family members and others who do not have PD, to locate trials close to home by searching by zip code, or to find a trial by searching for a specific symptom or by keyword.
The new website still includes clinical research news, along with the added features of in-depth educational information for individuals and support groups, and personal stories from people with PD who have participated in trials. The entire website is available in English and in Spanish.
PDtrials is led by PDF in collaboration with the American Parkinson Disease Association, The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, the National Parkinson Foundation, the Parkinson’s Action Network, The Parkinson Alliance and WE MOVE. The campaign is advised by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (National Institutes of Health), the Parkinson Study Group, the Parkinson Pipeline Project and The Parkinson’s Institute and Clinical Center.
