Volunteers in a clinical trial participate in the development of medical therapies that may offer better treatments and even cures for life-threatening and chronic diseases. There are rigorous guidelines in place to protect the safety and well-being of the participant, however, there may be risks involved:
• Clinical research is the future of medicine. Patients who participate may have access to cutting edge drugs and/or therapies and can help to shape treatment for future patients.
• Visits and procedures related to the study may be free of charge.
Those may include physical examinations, doctor visits, study medications, laboratory tests and other study related procedures.
Health insurance is not required and you may be compensated for your time and travel.
• You may learn more about your condition or disease and the latest treatments available.
