About Clinical Trials

Many people wonder what it is like to participate in a clinical trial. Some have never been introduced to the concept of a clinical research study, and do not have a good understanding of the requirements of participation. Others may be more familiar with clinical studies, but simply want to learn more. The key questions that people ask themselves before participating in a clinical trial are “What is this?” and “Is it right for me?”

There are many factors to weigh when considering participation in a clinical trial. Your decision to join is likely to be based upon several factors, such as the clinical development phase of the drug under study, protocol requirements (i.e., what you must “do” as part of the trial), the risks and benefits of participation, and your understanding of your rights as a human subject. You also may want to know if you will receive an active treatment for a medical disorder, if you have the chance of receiving placebo (sugar pill), or if you will be paid for your time. Whatever the case may be, if you do decide to volunteer for a clinical research project you will be among the many volunteers each year who help pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies bring new drugs to those in need. We consider these people to be “medical heroes.” 

So, what are clinical trials? Clinical trials are research studies that involve the testing of new investigational drugs or medical devices. Such trials are done in order to evaluate new drugs that have not yet been approved or are pending approval by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Trials may also be done to test a new drug against approved medications, in new patient populations or new forms, or in other circumstances.
