Why participate?

Deciding to take part in a clinical trial is a personal decision for you and your family. Many volunteers take part to find potential new treatments for a specific condition. Others do it to help advance modern medicine for people in the future. Some enjoy the one on one attention and education they receive on a clinical trial.Still others are curious about the process and want to play a part in discoveries that may lead to cures.  Whatever your reason,your health and safety are always the top priority.  

You may benefit from new or better investigational medication not currently available to the public, although this cannot be guaranteed. However, any study-related care will be provided at no cost. You might also be compensated for your time and travel.
