Clinical Trials

What are clinical trials?

Clinical trials are research studies used in all specialties of human and veterinary medicine to evaluate new medical devices, vaccines, diagnostic tests and treatments. These trials may investigate new types of surgical or other procedures as well as novel medical therapies for patients. Clinical trials allow clinicians to discover new and improved ways to prevent, diagnose or treat patients.

For all clinical trials performed at the Ontario Veterinary College, informed consent will be obtained from a patient's owner. The clinical care of a patient will not be compromised if clients opt to not participate in a study.

All necessary template forms that should be completed by the Principal Investigator for each individual clinical research for obtaining informed consent & providing information to clients & clinicians can be found on the OVC Template Forms page.
