What is a clinical research study?
A clinical research study, also called a clinical trial, is a scientific process designed to test the safety, effectiveness, and side effects of an investigational medicine or device as administered to participating volunteers.
This process is necessary in order to gain adequate understanding of the investigational treatment so that it may be submitted to the U.S. FDA for evaluation and, perhaps, approval for future medical use.
Should I volunteer?
Every year, thousands of volunteers participate in clinical trials in order to learn more about their condition and to help researches learn more about possible treatments.
Additionally, participating volunteers receive investigational treatments and study-related medical exams at no cost.
