Facts About Clinical Trials and How You Can Participate
What is a Clinical Trial?Clinical Trials are conducted to evaluate investigational drugs or FDA-approved drugs in the treatment of specific diseases or disorders.
Studies are conducted to determine how well the treatment works and how safe it is. Clinical Trials allow for medications to be approved in the U.S. or add new treatments for an FDA-approved drug.
Why Should I Participate in a Clinical Trial?Your participation will assist in the development of new treatments for you or others with conditions similar to yours.
Participants usually receive study procedures such as exams, medications, and lab work at no charge. The study doctor will discuss any benefits and risks as well as answer all of your questions prior to any study related procedures.
You also may be compensated for your time and travel.
Remember, you will never participate in a Clinical Trial without your knowledge or consent.
How Will My Privacy be Protected?Your name or any identifying information (name, address, phone number, etc.) is not reported to the pharmaceutical company and will not be given to anyone during the conduct of the Clinical Trial so your identity is protected.
What if I Change My Mind about Participating?You can end your involvement in the trial at any time, for any reason. Participation is completely voluntary.
