Is a clinical trial right for me?

Before embarking on a clinical trial, there are some important considerations that you need to explore to ensure that you make the right choice. Participating in a clinical trial does not come without some risks. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with the risks and benefits of participating in a trial by talking to your doctor, our research staff, and others who have participated in clinical trials. We also advise that you discuss this with your partner, family members, and others with whom you share close relationships. You will benefit from their emotional and practical support if they have a good understanding of your treatment regimen and the associated implications.

What are the benefits of participating in a clinical trial?

You will benefit from gaining access to medications that are not FDA approved as of yet. As well as receiving care from your dermatologist, you will also be looked after by an experienced team of research staff. This extended team will ensure that you will receive regular and comprehensive medical and emotional care while you participate in a trial. In addition, your participation in a trial means invaluable support for the development of a cure for your disease.

What are the risks of participating in a clinical trial?

Experimental treatments do not guarantee effectiveness. The medication may cause unpleasant side effects, which you need to be aware of as you will have to manage these as part of your day-to-day life during the clinical trial’s duration.
