Clinical trials are clinical research studies that are conducted to determine whether a medical device, treatment, or strategy is safe and effective for humans. Medical research looks for several different ways to help people live longer, improve their quality of life, and manage or cure diseases. This is possible because of the volunteers participating in clinical trials.
Laws and regulations governing clinical trials vary from country to country, but reputable clinical trials share important criteria, such as respect for participants’ rights, strong scientific evidence, oversight by independent committees, and compliance with the appropriate laws and regulations concerning clinical research on human subjects.

Santos Research Center conducts studies to help find better ways of preventing, diagnosing, and treating various types of illnesses.

Why Participate in Clinical Trials

Participating in a clinical trial has many benefits. Read this blog to be well-informed about the reasons people participate in clinical trials.

Participating in a clinical trial gives access to promising new treatments.

Your participation in clinical trials may give you access to experimental, cutting-edge medical treatment options. You gain access to potential treatments before they become widely available.

All clinical trial medications must pass the rigorous FDA standards before being tested on the trial participants so that they are not in danger during a clinical trial. A clinical trial is the only way to receive cutting-edge treatments when they are first developed.

Also, you will have access to a clinical research team that carefully monitors your disease and overall health.

Enhanced health care that incorporates the latest medical advances in technology.

Trials are planned and conducted very carefully to keep you and other individuals as safe as possible. Because we are often studying new treatments, clinical trials use up-to-date medical devices and the latest technology.

Close monitoring by strong research physicians and other healthcare professionals.

You can receive expert medical care at leading health care facilities — free of cost — while participating in important clinical research study.

Why Should I Participate in Clinical Trials?

Getting to take an active role in your care.

Having insurance is not necessary to participate in a clinical trial, and all trial-related treatment and medicine are provided at no cost to you. Some studies last for months, so you could potentially have long-term care for the condition the study is treating.

Helping others contribute to medical research.

You can help future generations—your children and grandchildren—by contributing to research.

Medical research studies are a significant component of the future of healthcare in the United States.

Taking part in a research study or a clinical trial has the potential to help the individual participants and other people who have medical conditions or diseases or might develop them in the future.

You can get paid for participating in clinical trials.

You may receive compensation by participating in clinical trials. Some trials will compensate you monetarily for the time and effort you spent on the study, which will vary in length.

Others will provide some other type of reimbursements, such as medical care, medical equipment, or medicine, depending on the study.

Protecting the Safety of Clinical Trial Participants

The history of clinical research is far from perfect. Based on several years of experience and learning, Congress has passed laws to protect study participants. Today, every clinical investigator must monitor and ensure that every participant is safe. These safeguards are an important part of the research.

Researchers must follow strict rules to ensure the participant's safety. These rules are enforced by the Federal Government. Every clinical research trial follows a careful study plan or protocol that states what the researchers will do. The principal investigator is responsible for ensuring the protocol is followed.

An Institutional Review Board at each study facility must approve every clinical trial. The IRB comprises doctors, scientists, and lay people, like yourself, who are dedicated to ensuring that the study participants are not exposed to unnecessary risks. The members of the IRB regularly review the study and its results. They ensure that risks (or potential harm) to participants are as low as possible.

Along with the institutional review boards, a Data and Safety Monitoring Committee closely supervises many clinical trials. The Committee is composed of experts in your condition who periodically look at the study's results as it is in progress. If they find that the experimental treatment does not work or if it harms the participants, they will stop the trial immediately.

The informed consent process also helps protect the participants. Before deciding to join a clinical trial, you will be informed of what to expect as a participant and all the things you might encounter. For example, a member of the research team will explain potential side effects or other risks of the treatment. As a part of the informed consent process, you will have the opportunity to ask questions about the trial.

After getting all the information, you can decide whether or not you want to participate. If you decide to join the clinical trial, you will be given an informed consent form to sign. By signing the informed consent form, you show that you have been informed of all the details and want to participate in the study. The informed consent form is NOT a contract. You can quit participating anytime and for any reason without being judged or put in a difficult position related to your medical care. Researchers must keep health and personal information private.
