Why take part in a research study?

When existing drugs don’t fully address a healthcare issue or have undesirable effects, pharmaceutical companies develop new drugs that bring a new or different way of treating the disease or may be less uncomfortable to take than the existing available medicines. Some common reasons people decide to participate in a study include:
  • Taking a more active role in your health care
  • Gaining access to the newest treatments available for a disease or condition 
  • Helping to advance research for others affected by the same condition
  • Receiving study-related medical care from the clinical trial study team
"I was a bit apprehensive at first when contacted and asked if I would be interested in participating. However, after meeting the staff in my doctor’s office…everyone was very pleasant and explained things with such ease it made the whole process so simple and easy."
– John, clinical trial participant

The goal of clinical trials is to determine if a new test or treatment works and is safe. Clinical trials can also look at other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses. To bring new treatments to patients, clinical trials test:
  • How well the drug addresses the disease and its symptoms 
  • How safe the drug is for people to take or use
  • How comfortable it is for patients to take or use while also measuring how the drug works
