As a participant in a clinical trial, you are part of a process to evaluate investigational drugs and treatments that may help, or lead to a cure, for your condition. You will be one of the first people to reap the benefits of newly invented investigational drugs that are not yet available to the general public and you will play an active role in furthering medical knowledge.
As a participant, you will receive free medical care from expert physicians. The trial is free for you, and you may even receive compensation for your time and travel. No health insurance is required, and all study-related medical exams, laboratory tests, and procedures are provided at no charge.
In addition to free medical care, participating in clinical trials helps the millions of others with the targeted conditions. Lifesaving and life-improving drugs would not be on the market if not for clinical trials, so as a participant, you play a fundamental role in drug development.
Our team of doctors, nurses, research coordinators and other medical staff has conducted hundreds of trials with thousands of participants. We are experts in clinical trials and are dedicated to performing clinical research with the highest ethical and scientific standards.
What is a clinical trial?
A clinical trial is medical research to study the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug or device. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) uses information gathered in clinical trials to evaluate medications before approving them for use in the United States.
