Clinical Research

Learn About Our Studies! We believe clinical trials are very important: They give patients access to promising medications and help advance the approval process.

The Clinical Research Center at Raleigh Neurology Associates has been a key player in the development and consequential approval of many treatment options available today. The ability to offer our patients unique and cutting-edge treatment options not only helps them, but also aids future generations once the treatment is approved and available in the open market.

We have 80-100 clinical trials in Phase II, III or IV of development at any given time in all neurological indications, including MS, Parkinson’s Disease and Alzheimer’s Disease, sleep medicine, migraine and stroke.

Our experienced nurse coordinators provide personalized care for all patients. We walk our patients through every visit of the trial—our priority is to keep our patients comfortable and well-informed throughout the entire trial process.

All aspects of the treatment are paid by the pharmaceutical company for the duration of the trial. RNA is a partner site with QuintineIMS and is an INC Research Site Partner and award winner.

New Horizons…

clinical-researchI was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 17 years ago. I was asked over 10 years ago if I was interested in being in a research trial for new medications being tested for use in treating MS patients. When asked about participation in a research trial, I thought it would be a great idea as I can assist in the research to find a cure for MS and help others newly diagnosed. I have never regretted my decision. The test medication is free, you have regular appointments with a doctor to monitor for adverse reactions, should you have a relapse while on the test medication you are given a steroid treatment free of charge and also given the choice if you would like to continue on the medication or opt out. My experience dealing with Raleigh Neurology and the research trials have been excellent; the care you receive during the trial is above and beyond expectations.
