Clinical Trials

A clinical trial is a research study. It looks at new ways to prevent or treat illness or disease, or to control the side effects of treatments.

We have more than 75 clinical trials available at Lakeridge Health. You may be able to take part in one. This may depend on your type of illness. Talk to your doctor to see if a clinical trial may be a choice for you.

To learn more about the different types and phases of clinical trials, visit our Types and Phases of Clinical Trials page.
