Frequently Asked Questions
Have questions about volunteering in a clinical trial? Here are answers to our most asked questions!

All clinical research sites are provided study-related medications and medical devices for trials. New study-related medications and devices are developed through well-established guidelines and regulations designed by the FDA to ensure their safety and effectiveness by the time they reach the public. Additionally, clinical sites are required to report to the Institutional Review Board (IRB) that monitors the patient’s experience throughout the study’s trial period.

“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. The role of volunteer subjects as partners in clinical research is crucial in the quest for knowledge that will improve the health of future generations. Without your help, the research studies at the Clinical Center cannot be accomplished.” (Provided by NIH, National Institute of Health)

No. Medical insurance is not required to participate in any clinical studies. If accepted for the trial, participants are provided study medication and medical care by our board certified/board eligible doctors and staff.

No, there are no costs associated with participation. Participants that meet all study criteria are eligible to receive compensation for time and travel related to participation. Compensation varies from study to study.

Some studies compare the medication being tested in one group against another group taking a placebo (a look-alike pill or tablet that has no active ingredient). You will be told if there is a placebo involved in the study you are considering enrolling in so you can make an informed decision about whether to enroll in the study.

A board certified or board eligible medical doctor and/or highly trained clinical research staff work together to provide you with medical oversight throughout your participation in the study.

You may participate in one clinical trial at a time. A 30 day wait period is typically required before enrolling into another clinical trial.

We are continually adding new studies. Contact us if you don’t see the indication that you are interested in and we can check our pipeline of upcoming studies and/or add you to our database to contact once we have something that meets your needs.

We maintain a HIPAA compliant database that is only used by CRWF to identify potentially eligible patients for current and upcoming clinical trials. Should you not qualify for a current study, we will confirm that you would like to be added to our database, and we will contact you when something applicable is available.
