We are currently involved in clinical trials in several neurological fields including migraines and dementia. Research is only performed with your informed consent.
They are research studies conducted according to a plan called a protocol. A protocol describes what types of patients may enter the study, the schedule of tests and procedures, drugs, dosages, and length of study, as well as the anticipated outcomes to be measured. Carefully conducted clinical trials are the mechanism to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of investigational drugs.
Once you find a study you might be interested in, the best way to find out if you
can join is to call and speak with one of the organizations performing the clinical trial.
They have the knowledge on the requirements for participation.
Each trial is very specific in its requirements and this is the best way to
start the process.
Although you may not qualify for a particular study, if you want to be considered for future studies in a particular therapeutic area, you can ask to be put in an organization's database for notification about upcoming trials.
Choosing to participate in a clinical research study is an important personal
decision. Informed consent is just one part of a larger process designed to
help safeguard people who are interested in participating in a clinical study.
Informed consent is the process of learning the key facts about a clinical study before deciding whether or not to participate. This process continues throughout the study as a way of providing information to participants.
