Frequently Asked Questions

How much does it cost?

Our research studies are completely free. There is no charge for participation, and you do not need insurance to participate.

Why will treatment be free?

The clinic is able to provide free treatment because our research is funded through various industry or pharmaceutical company sponsors.

How safe is the research?

All research protocols conducted at the MRN are reviewed for subject protection and safety by an Institutional Review Board (IRB). The IRB is a panel composed of individuals with no relation to the study sponsor or our clinic. The job of the IRB is to review and ensure that the study is being conducted in a safe manner and that the patient has been fully informed about what participation entails.

What are the benefits?

One of the many benefits will be the evaluation and treatment by experts; safety will be closely monitored, and a doctor is available 24 hours a day. Satisfaction in knowing that you are helping to develop better treatments for people with similar problems will also be comforting. After completing the research study, we offer patients an additional 6 months of individualized private treatment, which is provided free of charge. If you need longer treatment, we will help you to obtain it.
