Years of research is conducted on each new medication or device prior to it being introduced in larger phase II or phase III clinical trials. Conducting a research study is important for a potential new medication or device to even get to a phase II/III it must have passed rigorous safety tests and met effectiveness checkpoints through.
Without the extraordinary work of PRG and the research program, we may not know the joy of being parents today. Their knowledge and caring made the process so much easier.
We thank everyone at PRG for the extraordinary gift they've given us that has changed our lives forever!

Clinical trials are the most important step in a new medication being approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
A clinical study involves research using human volunteers (also called Patient/Participants). The study is intended to answer specific questions about investigational medications that may benefit future patients and current research participants.
Trials are designed to assess both the safety and effectiveness of a product, and they are conducted carefully, under rigorous U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines. There are two main types of clinical studies: clinical trials and observational studies. PRG participates in both clinical trial and observational studies.
If you have ever taken a prescription or over-the-counter (OTC) medication, your life is being touched by clinical studies and its patient participants. Through the clinical research process; medications, medical devices, and vaccines are developed for those who need them most.
Patient participants give of themselves by volunteering to assist researchers in testing the safety and efficacy of these medications. By giving back in this way, you will enable countless others the opportunity to benefit from your efforts. Most of our research trials will pay you for your time, travel, and/or mileage.
By participating in a clinical trial with Physicians Research Group you can expect:
I've participated in several other clinical research studies and Physicians Research Group is by far the best experience I've had.
The staff knew all of my details and were always on top of my progress. The doctors answered every question I had, and I always felt like I was valued for my participation.
A great experience overall!
