|Finding clinical trials
Jan 22, 2002
I am interested in clinical trials for Pegylated Interferon combined with something other than Ribaviran (such as Vertex VX497). How do I go about it if my local gastroentrologist won't help me?

The American Liver Foundation would be a good resource. Try to find your local chapter, they often know what is going on in the regional healthcare community. Alternatively, you can call academic medical centers in your area because they are most likely to be involved in early clinical trials of new drugs.
