Participating in research studies is essential to discovering new, more effective tests and treatments for different conditions. TMA members who have been involved in past clinical trials highly recommend it as a way to further knowledge of rare diseases like myositis.
Visit ClinicalTrials.gov to find a list of disease-specific research studies for:
