The top ten reasons to volunteer for a clinical trial:
- If you are suffering from a disease or condition, a clinical trial could help you gain access to treatment otherwise unavailable to you.
- If you have exhausted all standard options for treatment, a clinical trial might offer a new option that helps where standard therapies have failed.
- Participation in a clinical trial is an important way to contribute to a vast body of medical research.
- Clinical trials need to include a diverse group of subjects to be fully effective. If you belong to a minority group, your participation can be even more vital.
- Your participation in a clinical trial could lead to a new treatment that helps you or someone you care about.
- Free medical care. A physician will usually closely monitor subjects in a clinical study. All necessary exams, lab work and medications are typically provided free of charge.
- Participation in clinical trials can be a way to volunteer for a cause that is important to you.
- You might find a better treatment option with fewer side effects.
- In some cases you will be compensated for your time and inconvenience.
- You might learn something new.
