Why Participate in Clinical Studies
Clinical trials are carefully controlled scientific studies that evaluate how well investigational or modified medicines may treat or prevent diseases in people.
A clinical trial follows a protocol that has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other regulatory agencies to ensure patients’ and trial volunteers’ safety.
The trial protocol outlines the types of participants to be included, the schedule of study visits and procedures, safety precautions, and what and how study data will be analyzed.
New treatment discoveries are only possible because of the volunteers who participate in clinical research. Joining a clinical trial is an important decision, and the benefits and risks of participating should be discussed with your healthcare provider.
