WHAT ARE CLINICAL TRIALS?

Clinical trials are research studies performed on humans to help evaluate a new medical treatment, drug or device.

The main purpose of a clinical trial is to discover new and improved methods for treating and preventing different diseases, illnesses, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

The length of a clinical trial varies depending on several factors, such as the type of illness and the type of medicine being researched. For example, if the study is researching a treatment for a chronic condition, participants’ progress on the trial may be tracked over a relatively long period of time. Studies of antibiotics on the other-hand conclude quickly as patients are typically treated on study for a few days only.

Depending on the study and the study process, in some cases you will have to keep track of your process, in other cases you will not, but you will have the support and guidance of the research team.

As a research participant, you have the right to drop out of a study at anytime, the right to be given new information about the study, and the right to ask questions at anytime and have them answered promptly.

A study may involve clinical procedures such as an MRI, blood tests, hearing tests, etc. even though the purpose of the study is not to treat the individual for any health condition and does not involve treatment of any kind. Again, in these situations, the general rule of no right to access study records would be applicable. However, the researcher may decide, even if there is nothing in the study consent form that grants such a right, that he/she wants voluntarily to provide the test results to the participants. Subject to any contractual obligations, discussed below, this voluntary disclosure may be accomplished in three ways. First, the researcher may extract these results from the study record and give them to the participant. Second, if the researcher is not the treating physician and the participant gives their consent, the researcher could extract these results from the study record and provide them to the participant’s treating physician. Third, if the researcher is also the treating physician, the researcher may extract these results from the study record and enter the medical information in the participant’s medical record.

No, you do not have to be a US citizen to participate in a clinical trial. We also do not ask for your social security number. All we ask is that you have a physical address and some form of ID that we can use during the enrollment process.

Sure, you can refer any friend or family member who is willing to participate in a study, for more information click here!
