What is a Clinical Trial?
Clinical trials are voluntary research studies conducted in people and designed to answer specific questions about the safety or effectiveness of drugs, vaccines, other therapies, or new ways of using existing treatments.

Assembly Bill 214
During the 79th (2017) session of the Nevada Legislature, Assembly Bill (AB) 214 was passed. This bill requires the Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH) to establish a program to encourage participation in clinical trials of drugs and medical devices by persons who are members of demographic groups that are underrepresented in such trials. This bill also requires each state or local governmental entity that conducts such trials to adopt a policy concerning the identification and recruitment of such persons to participate in those trials.
