1. What is Clinical trial and clinical study ?
A “new drug” is tested on healthy participants and patients to consider and determine its safety and efficacy. The results obtained by the tests are reviewed by the government authority for an approval. Once approved it will be provided to people as a “drug”. We call such process to determine the effectiveness of such “new drug” as a clinical trial. On the contrary, clinical study is a research conducted to understand the mechanism of a disease by investigating the cause and assessing therapeutic strategies. The clinical study enables us to establish a better medical care in the future.

We conduct clinical trials and clinical studies in our facility by giving utmost consideration to our patients’ privacy and security. Our ethics investigation committee perform timely review to enable for us to conduct appropriate and safe clinical studies in line with “Ethical Guidelines for Clinical Studies” mandated by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare. We may request a patient to participate in a clinical trial or clinical study, but the final decision on whether or not to participate will be made by the patient. Even if the patient does not wish to participate and declines the request, he/she will not be penalized in any way. Moreover, in case the patient decides to suspend for some reason after giving the consent, the patient can withdraw from a clinical trial or clinical study any time. Data acquired by clinical trials and clinical study will be used to confirm safety and efficacy of examinations and therapeutic strategies. There are cases where information is announced in special medical conferences and published in scientific journals, but patient privacy will be protected completely and absolutely no information identifying the individual will be publicized. If you have any questions please consult us any time.
