Could you be at risk for C. diff? If you answered ‘Yes’ you may be at risk for a serious healthcare associated infection from a bacterium called Clostridium difficile (C. diff) Sanofi Pasteur and this research site are conducting a clinical research study to find out if an investigational vaccine can protect at risk individuals like yourself from Clostridium difficile (C. diff) infections

About Clinical Trials

What is a clinical trial?

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.

Why participate in a clinical trial?

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.

What happens during a clinical trial?

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.
