What Are the Benefits?

Although there are risks with any treatment, there are also many benefits of taking part in a clinical trial. For example:

  • Access to promising new treatments that are not available outside of the clinical trial setting.
  • The treatment being studied may be better than the standard approach.
  • You are followed very closely by a research team that is made up of doctors and other health professionals.
  • You may be the first to benefit from the new method.
  • Results from the study may help others in the future.
