What do I do if I am interested in applying ad a subject for a clinical trial?
First and foremost, this is a voluntary undertaking. You must meet the requirements of the study by having the specific characteristics and disease to be tried. For those willing, an informed consent is requested and once signed a subject undergoes a screening test. These tests determine whether a subject is eligible to enter the trial or not. If a subject is eligible, a battery of tests plus the investigational product is introduced. Safety is the utmost concern of the trial and the subject is oftentimes tested to determine for any untoward event. The subject will be checked regularly using a predetermined visit schedule and checked for effects and adverse events. The trial may last for six months or more and the subject may withdraw anytime if they so wish.
