Over 8,200 Clinical Trials of Medicines Conducted by Texas Research Institutions Since 1999


Medicines in Development

Each patient battling with a disease or managing a condition lives in the hope that tomorrow will bring a new medicine that delivers better health. America’s biopharmaceutical research companies share the same goal of developing new medicines that can prevent diseases, improve patients’ health, and save lives. Beyond each individual patient, new drugs can help society overall by reducing sick days and helping cut the cost of healthcare.

Research in Your Backyard

There’s a good chance you can find a clinical trial taking place practically in your own backyard. Biopharmaceutical companies are conducting clinical trials of new medicines in collaboration with clinical research centers, university medical schools and hospitals all across the country. These trials provide patients with access to new potential therapeutic options.

Clinical Trials

Discovering and developing new medicines is a long, complex, and costly process, but biopharmaceutical researchers devote their careers to this often frustrating but tremendously gratifying task. The research and development (R&D) process is the road to new medicines—and more often than not it entails many turns, stops, and starts. Substantial progress typically occurs in increments over time, as advances build on each other.

Intellectual Property


Innovation—it is what everyone likes to talk about, but what does it really mean for millions of patients battling disease? Simply put, medical innovation can help patients live longer, healthier and more productive lives.
