What Are the Benefits of a Clinical Trial?
You may get a new treatment for a disease before it is available to everyone.
You play a more active role in your own health care.
Researchers may provide you with medical care and more frequent health check-ups as part of your treatment.
You may have the chance to help others get a better treatment for their health problems in the future.
You may be able to get information about support groups and resources.
What is a Clinical Trial?
is a branch of healthcare science that determines the safety and effectiveness (efficacy) of medications, devices, diagnostic products and treatment regimens intended for human use. These may be used for prevention, treatment, diagnosis or for relieving symptoms of a disease.
What are the risks involved in participating in a clinical trial?
The new treatment may cause serious side effects.
The new treatment may not work or it may not be better than the standard treatment.
You may NOT be part of the treatment group (or experimental group) that gets the new treatment—for example, a new drug or device. Instead, you may be part of the control group, which means you get the standard treatment or a no-treatment placebo.
The clinical trial could inconvenience you. For example, medical appointments could take a lot of time or you might be required to stay overnight or a few days in the hospital.
