What is a clinical trial?

The idea for a clinical research study—also known 
as a clinical trial—often originates in the 
laboratory. 

After researchers test new therapies or procedures
in the laboratory and in animal studies, 
the most promising experimental treatments 
are moved into clinical trials, 
which are conducted in phases. 
During a trial, more information is gained 
about an experimental treatment, 
its risks, and its effectiveness.

Who should consider clinical trials and why?

Some people participate in clinical trials 
because none of the standard (approved) 
treatment options have worked, or they are 
unable to tolerate certain side effects. 
Clinical trials provide another option when 
standard therapy has failed. Others participate 
in trials because they want to contribute to 
the advancement of medical knowledge.

Are clinical trials safe?

FDA works to protect participants in clinical 
trials and to ensure that people have reliable 
information before deciding whether to join a 
clinical trial. 
The Federal government has 
regulations and guidelines for clinical research
to protect participants from unreasonable risks. 
Although efforts are made to control the risks 
to participants, some may be unavoidable 
because we are still learning more about 
the medical treatments in the study.

The government requires researchers to give 
prospective participants complete and accurate 
information about what will happen during the trial. 
Before joining a particular study, you will be 
given an informed consent document that describes 
your rights as a participant, as well as details 
about the study, including potential risks. 
Signing it indicates that you understand 
that the trial is research and that you 
may leave at any time. 
The informed consent is part of the 
process that makes sure you understand 
the known risks associated with the study.

What should I think about before joining a clinical trial?

Before joining a clinical trial, it is important to learn 
as much as possible. Discuss your questions 
and concerns with members of the health care team 
conducting the trial. Also, discuss the trial with your 
health care provider to determine whether or not the 
trial is a good option based on your current treatment. 
Be sure you understand
what happens during the trial:

The type of health care you will receive
any related costs once you are enrolled in the trial
the benefits and risks associated with participating
