Description: Clinical trials are an essential part of how advances are made in medicine. Current knowledge of lupus is built upon the results of yesterday's clinical trials. But what exactly is a clinical trial? How do you find more information about clinical trials or go about enrolling in a clinical trial? Dr. Caricchio is passionate about lupus research and will discuss clinical trials at length, including what to expect in a clinical trial, the challenges facing rheumatologists and patients alike, and how to enroll in one.
