A clinical trial or study is a scientific test of the effectiveness and safety of a therapeutic intervention (such as a drug, surgery, procedure, device, or vaccine) using consenting human subjects. Clinical trials are carried out under strict guidelines with great attention to safety measures. The links below take you to current clinical trials at UT System institutions.
Clinical Trials Xpress network coordinates clinical trials among the multiple institutions of The University of Texas System. A central coordinating office at the Texas Medical Center in Houston works with each institution's clinical trials office to ensure that new drugs and therapies developed by researchers at UT institutions are effective and will get to patients faster. Clinical Trial Xpress is funded by the UT System Board of Regents and created in collaboration with the Texas Regional CTSA Consortium, a System-wide consortium of National Institutes of Health-funded Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) programs.
Additional information can be found through UT System's policy governing clinical trials (UTS125 Processing of Intellectual Property Agreements) and the Texas regional Consortium of Clinical and Translational Science Awards program.
