The compensation varies by study and time involved. If you are qualified to participate in the clinical trial and are selected to enroll, the payment terms (how much and how often) will be explained to you during the Screening Visit. Payment is also based on whether you complete all visits and procedures in the study.
Clinical studies (also called clinical trials or clinical research) are used by the FDA to determine whether new drugs or treatments are both safe and effective. Carefully conducted clinical studies are the fastest and safest way to find treatments that work – and they are only possible with the help of volunteers like you.
Sheldon emphasizes the importance of clinical trial success. “The public needs to know that without their participation, science can’t advance. There isn’t enough R&D out there – it requires participation and commitment to advance medical science.”
