Patients: Find Out About Clinical Trials with USC Doctors

To help patients battling devastating diseases, USC offers innovative new surgeries, drugs, and therapies that might lead to a cure. Clinical trials at USC engage patients in finding new and better ways of treating diseases through scientific studies. For example, a trial may test the effectiveness of blood pressure medication or whether a certain drug can lower cholesterol.

Hundreds of clinical trials take place each year at the Keck Medical Center at USC and at USC/La County Hospital, giving select patients access to therapies not available elsewhere. If you are interested in participating in one of our clinical trials, please visit the following websites for more information.
