What is clinical trial?

    A clinical trial is used to test new drug products and existing medications to help develop new treatments. Here are some of the common types of clinical trials:

Inpatient clinical trials

Inpatient clinical trials require that the subject (meaning you) stay at the facility for the length of the study, including overnight.

Outpatient clinical trials

Outpatient clinical trials require that the subject appear for the initial screening and trial start and then complete several follow-up visits.

Phase I, II or III
If the clinical trial involves the development of a new drug or medical procedure, that intervention must pass through a series of tests, or phases, before being approved by the FDA. Phase I trials assess the safety of the intervention relative to placebo. Phase II trials assess intervention efficacy (i.e., does it work). Phase III trials fine-tune intervention dosing, confirm efficacy, etc.

As you can see, you can find a trial that suits your time and lifestyle. A few more facts to consider:

Control vs. test group
Study participants are categorized into control and test groups. The control group is typically not administered the intervention and usually receives the placebo. Participants may also be recruited for the direct purpose of being part of the control group; for example, a study may need participants who do not have diabetes so that their responses can be compared to those participants who do have diabetes.

High pay
Clinical trials pay between $50-$300 per day/visit, with compensation dependent upon the length of the time required as well as the procedures performed. Overnight stays typically pay more money than those involving repeat visits. Likewise, the more invasive the procedures, the more monetary compensation that is provided.
