Reaching the Next Phase of Clinical Research

A clinical research study is designed to answer important questions about investigational drugs and devices – like VeraCept.

We’re moving to a Phase III study evaluating VeraCept. Researchers are continuing their efforts to bring an IUD that’s hormone-free, low-dose copper and flexible to you.

Investigational drugs and devices are tested in clinical research studies before they are approved and available to be prescribed by doctors. Clinical research studies are also reviewed and monitored by an Institutional Review Board (IRB), which makes sure that the rights of participants are protected, and that there are no unnecessary risks involved in the study.

Choosing to take part in a clinical study is a big decision. It’s important for you to understand what the study is about, the potential risks, and what will be involved before you agree to participate. For more detailed information, you can reach out to a study site convenient for you.
