Hep Lesson: Joining a Clinical Trial
« on: April 03, 2015, 01:44:45 pm »
People take part in clinical trials for several reasons: Some people do it in order to get a new and otherwise unavailable treatment. Some people participate in order to get free lab tests/healthcare. Also, your participation helps scientists find better treatments for viral hepatitis.

Conversely, there may be reasons not to participate: For instance, the treatments in the trial may have side effects or be unsafe. Future treatments may not work as well because of drugs you took in a clinical trial. Studies may also require hospital stays or invasive tests or procedures. Or you may just not have the time and energy that a study might require.
