It's true that there are always risks involved in the development of ground-breaking therapies in medicine. Therefore we always have a responsibility to make the subject aware of all possible scenarios and situations. Good research design attempts to maximize benefits and minimize risks. By carefully designing, executing and supervising trials, researchers try to reduce those risks.
What is a clinical research study?
A clinical research study is a study in human participants to help answer specific health-related questions. Some research studies determine whether investigational treatments or new ways of using approved treatments are safe and effective.
Who is eligible for this research study?
All clinical trials have guidelines specifying who is eligible to participate. 'Inclusion' and 'exclusion' criteria are an important principle in medical research that enables us to produce reliable results. The factors that determine eligibility are called "inclusion criteria," whereas the factors that determine non-eligibility are referred to as "exclusion criteria." The decision is based on factors such as age, gender, one's type and stage of a disease, precious treatment history and other medical conditions. The study doctor is the only person who can determine whether you are eligible to participate in the study or not.
What can I gain from joining a clinical research study?
Participants are involved in clinical research enabling us to answer specific questions related to healthcare. Carefully conducted clinical trials are the quickest and sagest way to discover new and effective treatments and therapies.
What questions should I ask if I am thinking about a clinical
If you want to take part in a clinical research study, you should inform the study doctor and his/her staff of your interest. If you qualify to participate, the study doctor and his/her staff will provide you with the informed Consent document, which will provide you with more information regarding the study. They will review all the information with you and give you the opportunity to ask question about anything you do not understand. Questions you should ask include; if the study medication is investigational? what treatments are available for your condition? how long does the study last? what benefits or side effects might you experience? what happens if I have side effects?
