What is involved in a clinical study?

Volunteer constraints and obligations in a clinical trial

Each clinical study is different. Some require you to stay just a few hours and others require to stay overnight, for a few days or even a few weeks. Some trials do not require any hospitalization but only outpatient visits at our clinic in Newark (NJ).

You must consider all of these specifics to decide if you want to participate in our research trial. You can ask those questions to the recruitment team or to the investigational physician in charge of the trial during the screening visit in our facilities in Newark (NJ).

Health and safety is our priority

Clinical trials are well supervised, subject to numerous controls and follows carefully the protocol, a study plan which details what researchers will do in the study.

Close medical monitoring

Clinical monitoring is provided for the duration of the study (from the first screening to the end of the study) by specially trained medical staff (doctors, nurses and technicians).

You will be subject to different types of medical examinations during your stay in addition to taking medication or placebo. According to the study, we can perform blood testing, measuring of blood pressure, urine samples, electrocardiogram, etc.

Your diet will be closely monitored and you won’t be able to smoke, drink alcohol, take recreational drugs or medication and you’ll only practice a limited amount of sport.
