The Importance of Participating in Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are at the heart of all medical advances.  They provide great hope for our community today and the opportunity to deliver even more impactful treatments in the years to come. 

Today, there are more clinical trials studying treatments for Duchenne than ever before. However, because there are more clinical trials, more patients are needed to participate in those trials. Without participation from the patient community, research progress stalls. In fact, finding participants for trials is one of the most time-consuming aspects of the drug development process.

An involved patient community is necessary to keep the momentum for advancing Duchenne research. The successful development of treatments and the potential to cure Duchenne muscular dystrophy relies on our participation in clinical trials.

“My wife and I have learned the very personal value of knowing you are doing all you can. We’re all searching for “The” treatment and a cure, but we can’t expect to get there without participating in the research ourselves. We understand how far the research and clinical trials have come in the past 10 years and are very grateful to the families that have contributed to this progress.”

– Clint Porter, Son lives with Duchenne

Find a Clinical Trial That’s Right for You 

When it comes to finding a clinical trial, sometimes figuring out where to start can be the hardest part. The DuchenneXchange Clinical Trial Finder helps increase participation by making it quick and easy to search for trials.

Simply answer a few basic questions, and the Clinical Trial Finder will use your criteria to identify Duchenne trials that match your profile and are either recruiting or expect to begin recruiting soon. 

The result is a list of clinical trials that you may be eligible to participate in. Each clinical trial record in the list also provides details from the trial protocol and information about the sites where the trials are taking place. 

If you have questions about a trial or would like to express interest in participating in one, you can easily contact the trial coordinator directly from the DuchenneXchange. You can even sign up to receive email alerts when new trials that match your profile begin recruiting.

While clinical trials are important, the choice to participate in one is very personal and depends on your unique situation. Talk with your doctor about all of your treatment options. Together, you can make the best choice for you.
