What are Clinical Research Trials?

For a new medication to be approved for general use, it needs to be studied rigorously at clinical research sites to ensure the drug's safety and efficacy in patients.  Clinical research trials use carefully designed scientific processes to test new medications or the combinations of existing medications with volunteer patients to ensure it is of significant benefit and minimal risk to people.  These trials are closely monitored by specialty physicians and trained clinical trials staff.

Are there benefits to volunteering?

Participating in a clinical trial is an important decision. As a volunteer in a clinical trial, you are participating in the development of new medications.  Other important reasons to consider volunteering are:

> New treatment options

> Assist in advancing medical science

> No cost for medical care

> No insurance necessary

> Possible compensation 

What happens in a clinical study?

During a clinical study, you’ll receive the medication that is being studied. This will be done at scheduled times and may occur only once or multiple times throughout the study, depending on the medication. If you participate, you may also have the following procedures performed to monitor your health: vital signs, blood work, physical exams or other types of assessments that are necessary to gather the required information about the study medication. In some studies, you may not receive the study medication, but instead receive a placebo (a substance having no pharmacological effect but administered as a control). All study volunteers are closely monitored by our clinic staff and medical team to ensure their safety at all times.

Who can participate in a clinical study?

Each clinical study has requirements for participants based on specific factors such as age, medical history and current health. The eligibility criteria in each study protocol are used to identify the volunteers best qualified to participate.

How do I know if I qualify for a clinical trial?

Before participating in a research study, a participant must qualify for the trial.  Along with following the scientific process designed for a study, clinical trials also have regulatory guidelines for patient qualifications.  Certain criteria for patients must be met including things like age, gender, type of disease, and overall medical history.  Our kind and friendly staff will walk you through these criteria to ensure that you qualify and begin a clinical trial.

How do I know I'll be safe if I participate in a clinical trial?

Our highest priority is the safety of our patients as they participate through our clinical trials.  At no cost to you (or your insurance), we perform lab assessments, exams, procedures, tests, and medications by qualified physicians and staff to ensure your safety through each trial.  At each study visit (and at any time throughout your participation usually through phone calls and/or daily/weekly logs), you will have the opportunity to describe any side-effects and/or adverse events (ranging from mildly annoying to life-threatening) that are experienced to honestly assess any medication you are taking.  Our physicians who oversee the trials are board-certified and readily accessible for questions and in the event of any emergency. 

Ideally, medications studied within clinical trial are proven to be of significant benefit and minimal risk to people and they'll obtain FDA approval for public use.  However, everyone may not respond positively to the medication and/or treatment within each trial, which still contributes valuable information from the research.  The need for diversity of patients who represent our overall population are vital here to assess the different effects of medication within different sub-populations. If it is obvious that the trial/medication is not producing the hoped-for results, it will thankfully be rejected from FDA approval and more research will be done to find something better.

Your name is never reported with the study data; names remain confidential and are never revealed to the public, sponsors, or governmental agencies. You may withdraw from a study at any time for any reason, and study doctors may also discontinue your participation if they ever feel a your safety is at risk.​

Will I be paid for taking part in a clinical study?

While participation in a clinical study is voluntary, you may be reimbursed for your time and travel. Compensation is based on the length of the study, the number of overnight stays, the number of out-patient visits you attend, and also based on risk. You may also be compensated for specific procedures depending upon the study. All payments we make for study participation have been approved by an Independent Review Board (IRB). The method and frequency of payment will be described in detail in the Informed Consent Form (ICF).

What happens at a screening appointment?

You are provided with detailed information about the study and can decide at any time if you wish to continue to participate. Several tests may be performed such as vital signs, physical exam, blood work, questionnaires, or others to determine whether you qualify for the study. If your information and results match the requirements for the study, you may be given the option to participate.

What should I consider before participating in a clinical research study?

We always want you to understand the study and feel comfortable participating and will do our best to inform you about the following, but here are some questions to ask yourself, your physician, and the clinic that may help you decide if participating is right for you:

> What are the qualifications of the physicians and staff?

> How will the trial help others?

> How much time will this research trial take and how many visits will I need to come in for?

> What will be expected of me as a research participant?

> What can I expect when I visit the research site?

> What kind of treatment will I be given?

> Will I receive a placebo?

> Will this treatment interfere with my current medication?

> What will happen if I get hurt or sick?

> Will it cost me anything to participate?

> Do I need medical insurance to participate?

> How much will I earn for participating?

> Who will provide medical care for me after the study?

> If the treatment works, can I keep using it after the study is over?

> Will I receive follow-up care after the study is over?

in gratitude, we thrive!
