A Clinical Study Journey Explained

For those interested in participating, here’s a comprehensive roadmap to ensure a smooth and informed experience from start to finish.

1 Pre-Screening

At this initial phase, we address specific inclusion and exclusion criteria for the study and other issues for suitability. An over the phone interview to qualify may also be required.

 2 Screening

Here’s what happens next. You will receive a study consent form (ICF) and meet the doctors and clinical coordinator. Many studies require a physical assessment and review of your medical history. Sometimes, a waiting period is required.

3 Enrollment/Randomization

Once you’re officially on board and qualified, the study will begin. You will be allocated at random to receive one of several clinical interventions, which could be a placebo. You and your Doctor will not know what you receive.

 4 Study Period

During the study period, the clinical team will monitor your progress and assess for adverse events. Depending on the study, follow up visits, labs and EKGs may be required or needed.

 5 Final Phase/End of Study

After the study journey concludes, you will have one last required safety visit with labs, physical assessments, and enclosing adverse events. Your safety and understanding are our top priority throughout this journey.
