A Special Opportunity
A clinical trial is a research study to answer specific
questions about new therapies or new ways of using known
treatments. Clinical trials, also called medical research
and research studies, are used to determine whether new
drugs or treatments are both safe and effective. Carefully
conducted clinical trials are the fastest and safest way
to find treatments that work in people.
Volunteers can come from all walks
of life and be any gender or any age. Studies need healthy
volunteers as well as ones who have an illness or inherited
disorder, and welcome people of all cultural, ethnic and
A Feeling of Satisfaction
Choosing to participate in a research study is an important
personal decision. Some RSVP for Health volunteers do
so because they have a desire to provide a benefit to
the community and help keep medicine moving forward. Others,
who may have a condition that has not responded to conventional
methods, welcome the opportunity to have access to an
investigational treatment not available anywhere else.
Whatever the reason for volunteering, each and every volunteer
is crucial in shaping the future of medicine.
