When considering participating in a clinical trial, it is important to make an informed decision. Below are answers to frequently asked questions.


What is a clinical trial?
A clinical trial is a way for doctors to try to figure out if a medical treatment works well for patients. Often we need more information about a medication and we can learn this information by evaluating the effect of the medicine or treatment on a patient. In a clinical trial, some people are given one treatment, while others might get a different treatment or even just a placebo. Then, doctors watch closely to see if one medicine helps people feel better than another, if there are any side effects, and how it compares to the old treatments.
