Navigating the Unfamiliar Waters of Clinical Trials

 

If you feel that finding information about clinical trials is similar to the experience of sailing through deep unfamiliar waters while facing the stiff headwinds of incomprehension, you are not alone. What follows is your “message in a bottle” to guide you to safe port.

Participation in a clinical trial is strictly voluntary. Once enrolled, you can withdraw at anytime. It is a requirement to sign an “informed consent” document explaining the risks and potential benefits of the trial.

The beneficiaries of clinical trials are not just medical researchers but also you, the patient, due to early access to additional treatment options that would not otherwise be available.

ClinicalTrials.gov

To find a clinical trial that you may wish to participate in, please visit ClinicalTrials.gov.

ClinicalTrials.gov is a practical, easy to use, interactive government website that lets you search, navigate and query a large database of clinical trials for specific information about a trial such as location, purpose, eligibility, and should be used in conjunction with advice from your doctor or other health care professionals.

If you specifically wish to take part in a EpicentRx trial, see our list of trials below, or add EpicentRx to the search function on the ClinicalTrials.gov home page.
