Bloomfrield Hills, MI (PRWEB) July 23, 2013
Michigan-based CureLauncher (http://www.curelauncher.com), developer of a patent-pending and proprietary clinical trial matching service, today announced an exclusive partnership with the National Stroke Association—a leading educational, prevention and advocacy group for individuals and their families and health care professionals confronting health issues related to strokes.
National Stroke Association members and visitors will be directed to http://www.curelauncher.com, where specially trained relationship managers help individuals find a clinical trial that may offer access to a new diagnostic test, treatment or rehabilitative approach.
“We are thrilled to partner with CureLauncher,” said Jim Baranski, National Stroke Association CEO. “Together, we can make progress in preventing, treating and understanding this challenging condition that impacts so many American families. In particular, clinical medical research is bringing us new diagnostic techniques to identify individuals at risk for stroke, as well as life strategies and other approaches to prevention.”
The power of clinical trials. Nearly 200 million Americans have a chronic disease such as diabetes, heart disease, asthma or cancer. Less than five percent of them know where to find new treatments available in clinical trials according to the Center for Information & Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP). Yet, some of America’s best medical care is available through these clinical trials.
"CureLauncher redefines the approach to clinical trials by putting people and their families first," said David Fuehrer, CureLauncher President, who is also a two-time cancer survivor and active speaker and volunteer for various support communities.
“We are excited to collaborate with the National Stroke Association. We want to help them in their quest to prevent or alleviate what is now the nation’s fourth leading cause of death,” Fuehrer added.
