Health Tip: Participating in a Clinical Trial
(HealthDay News) -- A clinical trial may be just what the doctor ordered for a person who hasn't responded to a standard treatment or is unable to handle its side effects.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration suggests you should research a clinical trial carefully and ask many questions before you consider participating.
The agency says before joining the trial, you should fully understand:
- What happens before, during and after the trial.
- Full details of the health care you will receive.
- The possibility of being paid for your participation and having
trial-related expenses reimbursed.
- All of the possible benefits and risks associated with participation.
