Clinical Research Studies
The practitioners at Fanno Creek Clinic feel it is important to provide our patients with the most current, effective, and innovative treatment options available. Clinical research is one way for us to bring new and cutting-edge treatment and technologies to our practice and give our patients additional treatment options.  

For almost 20 years, Fanno Creek Clinic has been proud to be involved with clinical trials that have covered diseases/disorders ranging from bronchitis to high blood pressure, from depression to diabetes, and from HIV to herpes. As a result, we have brought new and successful treatment options to hundreds of Fanno Creek Clinic patients.

Current Trials:

  Osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid arthritis
The study will compare 3 approved medicines commonly used to treat pain in people who have osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis and have or are at risk for heart disease.
