What is a Clinical Trial?

A clinical trial, or clinical research study, tests the safety and effectiveness of new investigational medications or treatments in volunteers. Participation requirements vary for each clinical trial and the study team is here to guide you through the process.

How are my rights and safety protected as a patient during a clinical trial?

Protecting the health and safety of people who take part in clinical trials is the highest priority for clinical researchers throughout the entire study process. All clinical trials follow strict federal guidelines on how volunteers must be treated.

What should I expect?

Once Lakeview Clinical Research determines if you are eligible for a study, you will then provide your informed consent for participation. The staff will outline what is expected of you during the study process including but not limited to:

  • Study visits and how often you will need to be seen by the clinical staff
  • The study medication and how its being used in the study
  • The total study duration
  • & other study specific details

After you have been provided all the study information, you will then give your consent to continue with the trial. Participation is always voluntary and you can leave the study at any time.

What is an investigational medication and placebo?

An investigational medication or device has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for commercial use, but is allowed to be used for research purposes. Many studies will compare the investigational treatment alongside a placebo, which is often similar in appearance but does not contain any active ingredients. Not all clinical trials use a placebo, some may compare against an already approved treatment or be testing different doses.

What happens if I decide not to participate?

Your participation in a clinical trial is completely voluntary and you can decide to stop at any time, but you should discuss this with your study doctor if you are thinking about stopping. Your decision to not take part in the trial will not affect your current or future care at our facility.
