Part of NATX’s mission is to support research, empowering patients to participate in clinical trials.
Clinical trials are crucial in researching for a cure for neuropathy and for more effective medications, healthier lives, and improved quality of life for our community.
In order for a new therapy or treatment to become FDA approved and available for use, it must be thoroughly tested on volunteer patients. Because of this, many therapies do not make it to the market because not enough volunteers participate in clinical trials. Not enough money can help skip this step in making the drug or device accessible, so patients play a largely important role in helping effective treatments reach those who need it.
