Why Is This Clinical Research Study Important?

It is estimated that up to 13% of people in the U.S. experience the symptoms of social anxiety disorder (SAD). These symptoms are experienced as intense and persistent fear of social or performance situations. For example, these fears may arise when meeting new people, giving a presentation, or just being in public such as while having dinner. These fears and anxiety can also interfere with the enjoyment of social activities, and performance at school or work. Unfortunately, SAD is one of the least commonly identified and treated mental disorders. While there are some approved treatments prescribed for people with SAD, these treatments do not always work.

For these reasons, it is important that clinical research studies such as this one are conducted that may help find new or better medications to help people living with SAD. Before new medications can be approved for public use, they must be tested in clinical research studies like this one.

What is Clinical Research?

Although there are many definitions, a clinical research study is generally considered to be health-related clinical research in people with a specific condition. Studies like this one evaluate "investigational" medications, meaning that the medications are not yet approved by medical authorities, such as the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration).
