We've compiled several common questions from research patients. If you still don't find answers to your question, please contact us.

What are the benefits of clinical research?
+
  • The opportunity to access treatments that are not yet available to the public
  • Helping others by contributing to the advancement of medical research
  • Study-related diagnostic procedures, visits, and medications are provided to you free of charge
  • Qualified participants may receive compensation for time and travel
What are the phases of a clinical research study?
+
  • Phase I: These trials are the first stage of testing in human subjects and are designed to
    determine the maximum amount of drug that can be given to a person without dangerous side
    effects.
  • Phase II: These trials are designed to demonstrate clinical efficacy or biological activity, and look
    to find the optimum dose with minimal side effects.
  • Phase III: These trials are designed to assess the effectiveness of the new product and its value
    in clinical practice. They are typically randomized controlled trials and test the product on a
    large number of patients.
  • Phase IV: These trials are confirmatory and occur after a product has received FDA approval.
What happens if I have an adverse reaction to the study product?
+

Your health and safety is our primary concern. You must notify the study team of any adverse reaction or concern you have for your health. You will receive treatment and follow-up care for any study-related adverse reaction.

What if I want to quit the study?
+
  • You are free to quit a study at any time. You may be asked to return for a final study visit to ensure your safety and to return all study products.
  • Depending on the study, you may also be able to continue attending study visits and receiving compensation without taking the study product.
