Clinical trials are part of clinical research and are critical to advancing medicine. They are research studies involving volunteer participants that evaluate new medical approaches and increase scientific understanding of a wide variety of diseases.
Involvement in a clinical trial is strictly voluntary, and people who participate may or may not experience personal benefits.
If you decide to participate in a clinical trial, you will play in important role in advancing scientific knowledge and helping future patients and generations to come.
