Disclaimer - Acoustic Neuroma Medical Research Studies and Trials Listings

The Acoustic Neuroma Association® posts information about Acoustic Neuroma medical studies and trials which may be of interest to ANA members. These listing are provided as a convenience only and are not to be considered an endorsement or recommendation by ANA.

All studies and trials listed have IRB or Ethics Committee approval. An Institutional Review Board (IRB) is a committee established to review and approve research involving human subjects. The purpose of the IRB is to ensure that all human subject research be conducted in accordance with all federal, institutional, and ethical guidelines.

Clinical study involves research using human volunteers (also called participants) that is intended to add to medical knowledge. There are two main types of clinical studies: clinical trials (also called interventional studies) and observational studies.

In a clinical trial, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or changes to participants' behavior, such as diet. Clinical trials may compare a new medical approach to a standard one that is already available, to a placebo that contains no active ingredients, or to no intervention. Some clinical trials compare interventions that are already available to each other.

When a new product or approach is being studied, it is not usually known whether it will be helpful, harmful, or no different than available alternatives (including no intervention). The investigators try to determine the safety and efficacy of the intervention by measuring certain outcomes in the participants.

The ANA website provides a brief introduction to studies and trials, with links to the study and contact information.  All information is provided by the research organization. AN patients should contact the research organization for more information using the contact information provided.
