Find FREE Clinical Trials for Seniors

Clinical trials are required for all FDA-approved drugs, and as new medications and therapies are constantly being introduced, participants are always needed for these trials.

Seniors and their caregivers who participate in clinical trials have access to top medical doctors and the newest treatments at no cost. Sometimes seniors and their caregivers are paid to participate in a clinical trial study. An additional benefit is the ability to receive a new medication that will possibly improve the senior’s medical conditions.

Clinical trial lengths vary along with the requirements for participants.
