If reserachers are wanting patient for a study. Potential patients are notified directly by us. It will be their decision to contact the study Coordinator if they are interested in participating in a study which is recruiting.
2016 Dr. Joutel talks about future medical trials. This hope of reaching a cure one day (and everyone is anxious for it) is what supports us. We have difficulties in imagining different stages to obtain the approval for a drug (or treatment). We hear about evaluation phases 1, 2, 3, etc. Could you tell us where we are today and what steps have already been accomplished? What steps are left to go? What are their potential durations? Can we have an idea of the process costs and how we can hope enough funding will be found?
