There are many reasons to participate in a clinical trial! Clinical trials are where new treatments are tested before they are made available to the general public. While participants of clinical trials cannot be assured of treatment, there are often many other benefits associated with participating.
Participants are closely followed by board-certified physicians, gain new knowledge about their condition, receive diagnostic tests and labs at no cost, and help advance medicine by providing valuable data for the research study. Additionally, participants are often compensated for their time devoted to participation.
