Participating in a clinical trial is an opportunity to possibly improve your quality of life and the lives of others. Although participation may or may not benefit you personally, the medications we take every day are available because of volunteers like you. Therefore, every person that takes part in a research study has contributed to improving the quality of life for others.
As a volunteer, you are playing an active role in your own health care. In addition, you may receive study medication at no cost, frequent meetings with the study doctor and compensation for your time and travel.
