What is Clinical Research?
Clinical Research are investigations that help researchers understand medical conditions that do not yet have a cure or treatment so that they can collect data to help discover new or better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat, the medical conditions that affect us.
Why Participate in Clinical Research?
- Clinical trial participants have the privilege of gaining access to free or low cost treatment and medications for diseases that are not yet available on the market.
- By contributing to medical research, clinical trial participants help advance medicine by providing valuable data for researchers to use to help come up with the treatment.
- Clinical trial participants often receive compensation for their time and participation in research.
- As part of the clinical research procedures, participants receive diagnostic tests and labs at no cost and more frequent medical care and check-ups.
You might be asking yourself, should you participate in clinical trials?
By participating in clinical trials you will gain new knowledge about your condition and essentially help others by helping the researchers come up with prevention, diagnosis, treatment or cure for a new treatment or better existing treatment.
