AARA physicians have a long history of participation in clinical trials and have helped in the development of many new groundbreaking treatments for rheumatic and autoimmune diseases. Our physicians have been recognized as thought leaders in the field of clinical research and adhere to the highest level of quality and safety. Enroll is the name of the AARA research organization which combines the resources of many AARA physician researchers and their staff with the management expertise of Bendcare.

Clinical research is a well-defined process of bringing new pharmaceuticals, biologics and devices to the general population of rheumatic patients. Some of the reasons to consider a clinical research trial include new treatment options not commercially available, helping identify causes of a disease, studying the interplay between genetics and illness among many other.

Your AARA physician may be involved in clinical research studies. Participation in clinical research is voluntary. Feel free to inquire about clinical research with your AARA physician.

Some examples of the disease states that your physician may be performing clinical trials:

Rheumatoid arthritis

Psoriatic arthritis

Systemic lupus erythematosus
