Part of our mission at Mass General is to not only provide state-of-the-art clinical care, but also to offer you the opportunity to participate in clinical research trials. A clinical trial is a study in people that tries to answer scientific questions and to find better ways to prevent, diagnose, or treat disease.
Many of our patients participate in a variety of trials sponsored by the National Institute of Health, Medical Foundations as well as Industry. Several of our clinicians are also investigators within these NIH-funded research groups, including The Ragon Institute at MGH, MIT and Harvard, the Translational Research Program, and the Harvard AIDS Clinical Trial Group (ACTG).
We offer a broad range of ongoing trials that you may be eligible to participate in, including trials that test new medicines to treat HIV and related problems, trials that study the immune system’s response to HIV, and trials testing vaccines that may either prevent HIV or strengthen the immune system’s ability to fight HIV. At your clinic visit, your provider may ask you if you are interested in learning more about our clinical research program.
