About the Clinical Trial Guide

Want to understand more about trials?

Clinical trials are research studies in which people volunteer to help find answers to specific health questions. See our story below!

Who we are

Clinical Trial Guide is intended to be a comprehensive clinical trial user guide for patients and their caregivers and a platform for sharing industry news and updates. Clinical Trial Guide was created by a team of passionate and driven trial enthusiasts who built a resource designed to make the process of learning about and deciding whether to participate in clinical trials less stressful and more accessible to patients and their loved ones.

After spending 20 years in the pharmaceutical space and seeing firsthand the challenges patients and their loved ones endure through a clinical trial process, chairman & founder David Polinsky created the Clinical Trial Guide to help those going through their most challenging times.

The free Clinical Trial Guide site explains how clinical trials work from start to finish, presents risks and benefits, offers resources for users to find current clinical trials relevant to their disease or condition, and provides regular, timely updates.


Our Mission

Clinical trial options continue to increase rapidly, and many patients and their loved ones are left in the dark in terms of their education and understanding for their impending journey. Clinical Trial Guide seeks to remedy this situation by guiding them through this complex process, offering users an innovative, start-to-finish approach as they consider enrolling in a clinical trial and ultimately participate.

CTG was created to do something to change the patient experience in order to be able to encourage patients to give clinical trials a chance, for the purpose of their own medical treatment and to bring more vital and innovative drugs and devices to market. Clinical Trial Guide is the solution.
