Depending on each clinical trial, the information and medical tests that are required will change. Each study has a different set of criteria. Some studies may have many tests, while others may have almost none.
During the screening visit (the first meeting), participants are given an overview of the study and are asked questions to see if they meet the requirements outlined in the study Protocol (rules). Some of the most common tests performed and information asked for are:
- Blood tests
- A routine physical examination
- Detailed Medical History
