Relaunched Website Empowers People Seeking PD Clinical Trials
A relaunched website, www.PDtrials.org, can help you and your family members learn about clinical trials ó the phase of research so vital to developing new therapies for Parkinsonís disease (PD).
Originally launched in 2004, the site lists information about 60 clinical trials across the US that are currently enrolling participants. The site will make it easier for potential participants, including family members and others who do not have PD, to locate trials close to home, or to find a trial by searching for a specific symptom or by keyword.
The website also includes clinical research news, educational information and personal stories from people 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 Parkinsonís Research, the National Parkinson Foundation, the Parkinsonís 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 Parkinsonís Institute and Clinical Center.
