Although there are many definitions of clinical trials, they are generally considered to be biomedical or health-related research studies in human beings that follow a pre-defined protocol. This is an interventional type study, meaning that you may be assigned to the study medication or you may be assigned to placebo (sugar pill). You will always be provided with a "rescue" pain medication that you can use if you are ever in pain.
Participants in clinical trials can play a more active role in their own health care, gain access to new research treatments before they are widely available and help others by contributing to medical research.
The clinical trial process depends on the kind of trial being conducted. The clinical trial team includes doctors
and nurses as well as social workers and other health care professionals. They check the health of the participant
at the beginning of the trial, give specific instructions for participating in the trial, monitor the participant
carefully during the trial and may stay in touch after the trial is completed.
Some clinical trials involve more tests and doctor visits than the participant would normally have for an illness or condition. For all types of trials, the participant works with a research team. Clinical trial participation is most successful when the protocol is carefully followed and there is frequent contact with the research staff.
