What happens in a research study?
Each research study varies significantly, but there are some common elements. Most (but not all) studies involve taking a medication or undergoing some form of treatment. The patient or volunteer will first undergo screening to determine that they fit the medical eligibility criteria for the particular study, and then be given the study medication or treatment. The patient or volunteer typically returns to the research site a number of times to measure their response.
Are research studies safe?
Before trials are conducted on humans, new medications or treatments have usually undergone extensive examination in laboratories and are tried on cells and animals grown in labs. The ones with positive results are then approved for testing in human trials.
All research studies are conducted only after the approval of Ethics Committees and must follow the International Guidelines for Good Clinical Practice. Participation is always voluntary and a volunteer must read and agree to the Informed Consent document, which outlines what will happen in the study and all risks associated with participating. Participants can also ask questions to the medical staff, and of course can consult with their own Doctor. Volunteers also have the right to leave the clinical trial at any time.
