Generally, all of our research studies offer compensation to the individuals who participate. The amount of compensation, however, varies from study to study. You will always be aware of the amount of compensation being offered in a study before you decide whether or not to participate.
The first step is to call 330-926-6927 for a quick pre screening to determine if you meet the basic health qualifications. You can also fill out the basic form and a member of our staff will be in contact with you.
You may or may not know which study treatment you are on during the trial. For blinded studies, you will find out what study treatment you received when all of the participants have completed the study.
Once it is determined that you meet the qualifications for the study and you give your consent to participate, you will be given a study packet of information to follow. There is no cost to you at all to participate in any study. All of the costs are covered by the organization sponsoring the study.
Most research studies have certain criteria that you must meet in order to participate. These criteria are designed to ensure the safety of the subjects as well as to ensure the usefulness of the research. Not everyone who wants to join a clinical research study will qualify. There are often specific criteria for meeting the qualifications of a clinical trial. Our staff will ask a series of questions in a pre-screening interview over the phone to determine if you meet the basic study criteria.
The health of millions has been improved because of advances in science and technology, and the willingness of thousands of individuals like you to take part in clinical research.
