Clinical Trials What You Need to Know
Thousands of people take part in clinical trails for a variety of reasons every day. Some are looking for ways to manage their disease and get medications before they are released onto to the market, others are just hoping to make a difference and offer their time and body to enable researchers to come up with new medications, surgical procedures and more that can help those that need treatments that work.
Clinical research’s main responsibility is medical advances.
It is new ways to detect, manage, prevent and treat a host of disease from cancer to arthritis and everything in between. This can include everything from drugs to surgery and even new ways to use current medications to produce better results.
A wide range of volunteers become participants in this type of medical research. You may have a disease or condition. Where you are not able to get the treatment you need or a treatment that works. Taking part in this type of trial doesn’t guarantee success. But it does give you the ability to try medications and surgeries, which may work, before they are released. This is exceptionally popular in HIV/AIDS patients and cancer patients who are looking for that one medication. Which can help them manage their lives and extend their life expectancy.
Not everyone is suitable for all the clinical trials taking place.
Researchers have had to put guidelines in place and can only accept a set number of participants. That tick all the boxes. If you are successful for an initial meeting, you will undergo an interview process. Where the researchers will determine if you are eligible. They will do a thorough medical examination and bombard you with questions. Gathering as much information as possible to make their final decision.
During this interview process, you will also given a chance to ask any questions and address any concerns you may have. One of the questions that is always worth asking is the harm risk to you if you decide to go ahead. Not all medications have tested, this can increase the risk of harm to your body. Ensure you speak to the researcher, identify any risks and then discuss that with your family before taking part. Risks vary considerably and it’s important you identify them and determine how this can affect you moving forward before signing the contract to take part.
Once you decide to proceed you will find the clinical trials broken into various phases. These phases are important to the outcome of the research and require that you follow direction to the letter in order for the researchers to collect accurate data and help them identify problems and successes, to push the medication or surgery forward in the future.
