Participating in Clinical Trials and Research Studies

What Are Clinical Trials?

Clinical trials and research studies that are performed in people to evaluate a medical, surgical, or behavioral intervention. They are the primary way researchers discover if a new treatment, like a medication, diet or medical device, is safe and effective in people. Oftentimes a clinical trial is used to learn if a new treatment is more effective and/or has less side effects than current treatments.

A clinical trial is often structured to measure the effects of treatment across a wide demographic, including participants that represent people of different ages, ethnicities, and health conditions. Researchers must ensure that they have the right number and mix of participant characteristics to get accurate, usable results. Read more about clinical trials and clinical research


Why you should consider participating in clinical trials?

To advance medical knowledge and test new methods of treatment for a variety of conditions, researchers often conduct clinical trials using volunteers and paid participants to test medications, programs or products that may help prevent or treat a medical condition.

Testing these new treatments helps ensure they are safe and effective for people of different ages, racial or ethnic backgrounds, and health conditions as they may have a different reaction to a product or program than others. This is one of the reasons that diversity, equity and inclusion in clinical trial participation is so critical.
