• What safeguards are provided during clinical trials?

    Both standard of care and clinical trials have risks, side effects and benefits that vary depending on the individual. For this reason, clinical trials provide strict guidelines to help protect the well-being and safety of participants.

    A research team, including a physician and research nurse, will explain the informed consent process. Informed consent is one of the most important rights of participants in clinical trial process.

    Also, clinical trial participants are constantly monitored to identify any changes in their conditions.
