¿What are Clinical Trials?
Clinical trials are research studies to find new and better ways to understand, detect, control, and treat health conditions. Through clinical trials, doctors test, evaluate and improve new or existing treatments to enhance the quality of live for people with certain diseases.
People volunteer to be part of clinical trials and help find better ways to prevent, diagnose or treat a disease.
¿Who can participate in clinical trials?
It depends on the trial, but researchers are typically looking for people who have a specific disease or who are at high risk to develop a certain disease.
Some trials are limited to people who haven’t started treatment, while others focus on people in whom standard treatment has failed. Healthy people are needed for some trials.
Researchers also consider age, sex and race, among other variables, when selecting people for clinical trials.
¿Why do people volunteer for clinical trials?
Clinical trials can provide access to new or experimental treatments that otherwise aren’t available.
However, there’s no guarantee that the treatment will work for you or even that you’ll receive it. Some participants in clinical trials get a placebo — a pill or liquid that looks like the new treatment but has no active ingredients.
Using placebos give researchers something to compare with the drug being tested. You can’t control whether you receive the placebo or the new treatment. Not all clinical trials have a placebo component, as some clinical trials compare two different active treatments.
Ask your doctor if there is a possibility you will get a placebo. Despite these caveats, clinical trials offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for people in the future.
