What is a clinical research study?
A clinical research study, also known as a clinical trial, is a scientific study in which patients help doctors find ways to improve standard treatments and a patient’s quality of life.
Taking part in a clinical research study may provide you with access to innovative treatments, while at the same time go a long way toward improving care and finding cures for future generations.
How safe are clinical research studies?
Many people wonder if by participating in a clinical research study is risky or unsafe. The government has set up safeguards that help protect people who decide to take part in a clinical trial. Also, clinical research studies have gone through strict ethical and regulatory checks. That said, nothing 100% risk free. It is important to understand what type of study you are considering and any associated risks before agreeing to take part in a clinical trial.
