"The most important breakthroughs in clinical medicine have been achieved by research studies. Rationally designed studies have yielded powerful empirical evidence, which, in turn, has led to marked improvements in the diagnosis and treatment of many different diseases."1
Clinical research helps to improve medical care
Patient safety and confidentiality are our highest priorities. Each study is conducted according to a carefully designed study protocol, which specifies all details pertaining to the study. Beyond these protocols, patient safety and confidentiality are ensured by independent ethics committees of the universities and medical associations involved in the studies – "ethics committees (sometimes known as ethical review boards or institutional review boards, IRB) are groups of experts evaluating the scientific and ethical merit of research studies. They are typically formed by physicians, natural scientists, attorneys, and lay persons".2 These committees have the task of reviewing the protocol of each planned study and then either allowing the study to proceed or not.
deprexis is continuously being updated and evaluated scientifically by various national and international universities and clinical project partners. The success of therapy research always requires the support of the people affected by the respective condition. Every study and, therefore, every study participant plays an important part in the development of new diagnostic and treatment methods. We are very grateful to each person who is willing to participate in deprexis-related research.
