Prior to any involvement in a clinical study, you would be asked to visit one clinic for an information and a basic testing session. Our research staff will ask you some questions about your health and past medical history to determine your eligibility. If you are eligible for any current studies, you will be given detailed information about the study. This critical process, known as Informed Consent, allows you to understand study design, procedures involved, risks and benefits of treatment prior to agreeing to participate in a trial.
Should you decide to participate, you will be asked to review the consent form and a copy will be given to you for your records, or to be discussed with family members or family doctor.
No study involvement would take place without a signed and dated Inform Consent form.
