Investigational research allows for a new product to be used in a clinical study to collect safety and effectiveness data to support a new marketing application and/or a new intended use/claim or certain modifications of a legally marketed device.
Post-market research and surveillance studies are required of, or agreed to, by a sponsor (i.e. Zimmer Biomet) that are conducted after the FDA or other regulatory authority has approved a product for marketing. Regulatory authorities use post-marketing study commitments to gather additional information about a device's safety, efficacy or use.
An investigator-initiated study is unsolicited, independent research in which the individual investigator (physician) designs and conducts the clinical investigation. The investigator assumes the responsibilities of all government regulations applicable for the conduct of the trial, not the company. Research support, in the form of product, funding and/or technical input, may be provided by the company.
Each clinical study comes with its own specific participation criteria. If you are interested in participating in a clinical trial or study, and to see if you meet participant criteria, visit www.clinicaltrails.gov. Keep in mind that there may not be a participating physician in your area.
So, while you may meet participant criteria, there may not be a participating physician near you. Should you decide to participate in a clinical study, it is extremely important you are willing and able to complete all study required follow-up visits and requirements.
