Ongoing clinical research is leading toward more effective treatments for auto immune diseases, and Dr. Guillermo Valenzuela is committed to participating in research programs using the latest medications. We are proud to be able to offer our patients leading-edge treatments through our research program. All studies are conducted following FDA clinical practice guidelines for testing on new medications not on the market as well as new uses for old medications.
Patient participation in research is completely voluntary and may be discontinued at any time. Eligible patients are never included without full disclosure and voluntary approval.
