Participate in a Research Study as a Subject
What is a Clinical Trial?
A clinical trial is an examination of a drug’s effects or an evaluation of a treatment, e.g. a surgical method, radiotherapy, physiotherapy, a special diet, or medical-technical equipment.
Clinical trials are required for new drugs or medical-technical products to be approved. Clinical trials can also enable the development of treatments that are as effective and safe as possible.
Why Participate as a Research Subject?
Participating as a research subject means contributing to research development. Research is dependent on healthy volunteers who contribute their participation to propel research forward.
There are also personal incentives to be gained from participation, as thorough health checks are often performed, and financial compensation is given for the volunteers’ trouble.
