Clinical Trials

Wharton Medical Clinic Clinical Trials offer a unique opportunity to be part of medical breakthroughs and innovations. We conduct clinical trials that test new medications and therapies for weight management,  Type 2 diabetes, and cardiometabolic health. Dr. Sean Wharton is a primary author on many of the trial publications (read more).

These trials could include taking a medication to manage or treat a chronic condition, and some often offer the opportunity to receive medications at no cost. Most trials, but not all, will include a placebo intervention arm (this is when patients are given a treatment designed not to have any effect).  Patients should be prepared to discuss the possibility of receiving the placebo.

By joining a clinical trial, you contribute to the development of new drugs, therapies, and medical approaches that can positively impact the health of future generations.
