Clinical trials are an important step in developing new treatments, but participation involves a number of important considerations.
Clinical trials are research studies that explore whether a medical device, treatment, or strategy is safe and effective for humans. Laws and regulations governing clinical trials differ from country to country, but reputable clinical trials share important criteria, including patient safety, respect for participants’ rights, strong scientific evidence, oversight by independent committees and compliance with appropriate laws and regulations concerning research.
Even though you are participating in a study, you are always treated as a person, not a subject. Your team gets to know you and truly cares about making your life better.
