Clinical Trials at Colorado Urology 

Our investigators bring extensive experience and knowledge to our clinical trials and to your treatment. Patient safety is our primary concern. All clinical trials are conducted according to the principles of Good Clinical Practice (GCP) as mandated by the FDA. We pledge to closely monitor your health throughout the study and provide prompt, personal care. Through our clinical trials, patients can access advanced technology and therapies before they are readily available to the general public.

What is a Clinical Trial?

A clinical trial is a carefully designed research study that investigates the effectiveness of a specific treatment for a particular group of people. Well designed clinical trials are the fastest way to find treatments that work. Participants are closely monitored by knowledgeable, experienced physicians (investigators) and health care professionals (clinical research coordinators).

Clinical trials usually involve three phases. In Phase I, a small number of participants are tested to assess drug safety. Phase II tests the ideal drug dosage and Phase III is a larger study to assess both safety and efficacy.

To provide an added level of safety and oversight, all clinical trials are approved by an independent Institutional Review Board (IRB). Interventional trials determine whether experimental treatments or new ways of using known therapies are safe and effective under controlled environments.

Benefits of Clinical Trials

Participating in a clinical trial has many potential benefits. These include:

  • Access to the latest treatments before they are widely available
  • Possible compensation for your time and reimbursement for extra services
  • Closer monitoring of your condition by expert medical professionals
  • Improved medical knowledge that can benefit others
Clinical trials may also have some drawbacks. The new treatment may:
  • Not benefit you even if it benefits others
  • Prove less beneficial than doctors hope and even less effective than an existing treatment
  • Cause unanticipated side effects
  • Involve more frequent visits to your physician’s office

Clinical Trials Team

While each clinical trial is different, you generally will work with a health care team that includes a doctor and a research coordinator. This team will follow a research protocol where all participants in an assigned group get the same tests and treatment. The team will check your health, carefully monitor you during the study and follow up after the study. It’s important to take all prescribed treatments and keep all scheduled visits.
