What is a Clinical Study?

A clinical study is any test or study that involves human participants, every clinical study is designed to answer specific questions about possible ways to prevent, diagnose or treat a disease or injury.

Why become a participant?

Some participants have a condition or injury and want to help doctors find out potential alternatives and new treatment options.

It may be there is no effective treatment for an illness or injury, or that the existing treatments may have side effects. Participating in a clinical
study may offer potential experimental options that might be unavailable otherwise.

Consider these before agreeing.

* What is the purpose of the study?
* Will this improve the quality of my life?
* Will this data and findings help others?
* How long will it last?
* Can I meet all the required additional
   procedures, tests, exams and visits to
   complete the study?
* What are the standard treatments available
   if I do not participate?
* Who can I talk to if I have questions?
