Clinical Trials Help & Save Lives

Clinical trials are an important step in discovering new treatments for so many diseases as well as new ways to detect, diagnose , and reduce the risk of getting a disease.

Clinical trials show researchers what helps and doesn’t help in people.

Clinical trials also help researchers and doctors decide if the side effects of a new treatment are acceptable when weighed against the benefits offered by a new form of treatment.

Researchers don't know what the results of clinical trials will be. (If they did, they wouldn't have to do the trials.)

The uncertainty can make it hard to decide if you want to participate in clinical trial.

In rare cases, clinical trial volunteers have been hurt by the treatment or procedure being tested. At the same time, hundreds of thousands of people have been helped and are alive because other people chose to participate in a trial that resulted in a new, more effective treatment.

While clinical trials are important, the choice to participate in one is very personal and depends on your unique situation.

As with any disease before getting treatment, you and your doctor need to weigh the benefits against the risks and decide what's best for you.

Clinical trials are just one of the many types of research that's done before a new treatment or drug becomes available to everyone .

New medicines must first be discovered, purified, and tested in preclinical trials before researchers even think about clinical trials.

On average, a new medicine to treat disease has been studied for at least 4 to 5 years (and sometimes many more) before a clinical trial on it is started.

Would you participate in a clinical trial?

I think I would.
