What is a clinical trial?
A form of clinical research that involves people like you. People who volunteer to participate enroll in carefully conducted investigations that ultimately uncover better ways to treat, prevent, diagnose, and understand human disease. Learn more here.
Why should I participate?
Patient participation is key to finding faster cures. Clinical trials are vital to understanding diseases as well as helping cure them. They offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future. Patient participation gives researchers the tools they need to move life-saving discoveries out of the lab to patients.
Do I have to suffer from a disease to participate?
No. Each clinical trial has its own goals and calls for a unique set of participants to meet those goals. Healthy volunteers are often needed to provide researchers with important information for comparison with people who have specific illnesses.
