Clinical Research


Research & Technology

A possible treatment for hot flashes? Your psoriasis? Or just your hay fever? Either way, clinical research in medicine is the key to the development of new treatments, new medications, and even cures. .

At the South Bend Clinic Center for Research, our physicians are committed to bringing our patients the highest quality of care, including the latest, most up-to-date therapies available anywhere. We think it's important to be on the cutting edge; that's why since 1986 the South Bend Clinic has been extensively involved in conducting clinical research studies. We have investigated new medications not yet approved, as well as better ways to use drugs already available, for diseases such as allergies, asthma, diabetes, arthritis, infections, women's health, and many others, including most types of cancer.

Through The South Bend Clinic Center for Research, our physicians and patients have participated in over 200 different trials, and studied nearly 100 brand new medications. As a result of our efforts, many now have been approved and are now available to treat not just our patients, but also others all across the country. Our efforts have been nationally recognized; in fact, our results have been published in the most prestigious medical journals in the world, including the New England Journal of Medicine.

We now have two locations. With a full service laboratory, radiology services including MRI, CT, and ultrasound, as well as a range of other specialists, both sites are equipped to handle a full range of clinical trials.
