Would you like to participate in a clinical research trial?
A clinical trial is a research study in human volunteers used to determine whether new drugs or treatments are safe and effective. Clinical testing is preceded by extensive laboratory research, and is normally done in three phases. Participants can help themselves and others by contributing to medical research and advancing the development of better treatments. The potential benefits and risks should be weighed carefully before entering a clinical trial. Explore the resources below to learn more.
