    These criteria don't necessarily discount a trial from being "legitimate" though. Many clinical trials have looked at nutritional supplements that are not under FDA regulation. As for devices, rehabilitation trials use things like virtual reality, or intermittent hypoxia delivered by sports performance devices - neither of these fall under FDA regulation either.

    Correct. That was printed on the clinical trial.gov site page.

    Just because a clinical trial is listed on that site does not mean it is endorsed or in any way vetted by the the National Institutes of Health, even thought they host the Clinical Trials.gov website.

    Check out this article about this issue: http://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/showthr...on-NIH-website

    This is an excellent resource to use in doing your own determination if a clinical trial is both legitimate and right for you:

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

    I sent them an email just to find out more information about the study and they replied back with a lot of information about the study. I guess the only downside of it it's that the FDA/NIH is not involved in the study and well you have to pay $19,600 to participate in it (if you meet the criteria).

    Be very leery of "clinical trials", ie, research studies, that require participants to pay. Legitimate studies are much more likely to pay participants, even if with just a token payment or free care.
