About Our Studies

Advanced Rheumatology of Houston has the honor to participate in worldwide research studies for a select number of rheumatologic conditions.

The mission of these research studies is to test an investigational new drug that will improve the lives of patients. Conditions like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis are manageable through medication.

However, some patients do not respond to the commonly used medications for these illnesses. Research studies set out to test new drugs, so patients have more opportunities for a comfortable life. Patients with rheumatologic conditions have an opportunity to participate in testing these new drugs.

Each research study has its own criteria participants must meet. Additionally, research studies often include free medication, clinic visits, and travel stipends. It is studies like these where patients feel like they are helping others.
