What is clinical research?
Clinical research is a branch of healthcare science that determines the safety and effectiveness of medications, devices, diagnostic products and treatment regimens intended for human use. These may be used for prevention, treatment, diagnosis or for relieving symptoms of a disease.
Clinical research is not the same as clinical practice. In clinical practice established treatments are used, while in clinical research evidence is collected to establish a treatment.
Why participate in a clinical research trial?
Participating in a clinical trial has many benefits including:
- Access to treatments that may not yet be widely available.
- One-on-one medical care from an experienced medical provider, at no cost to you.
- Compensation for study-related time and travel expenses (varies with each trial).
- The opportunity to help advance medical research and facilitate treatment for others suffering from illness in the future.
Acurian Health provides resources on clinical trial opportunities and information in a variety of countries around the world. For more information, please visit their website at: www.WhyParticipate.com
