How It Works
– Bringing Tomorrow’s Novel Medicine to Today
What is a Clinical Trial?
It is a scientific research study that evaluates the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug. Clinical studies are necessary to determine whether or not potential treatments will be approved by the FDA for future use.
What You Can Expect in a Clinical Trial?
All Clinical Studies conducted at Millennium Clinical Trials are overseen by highly skilled specialists and licensed physicians. Our studies are approved to be conducted by the FDA and study oversite is maintained by various regulatory bodies and Institutional Review Boards (IRB’s) or Ethics Committees. If qualified, you will gain access to a novel new, promising medication, not yet available to the general public, doctors, or other medical institutions.
In addition to assisting in the advancement of scientific and medical knowledge, treatments, and improving patient care, there are many other benefits in participating:
- Investigational drug and study-related assessments (i.e. x-rays, ultrasounds, DEXA scans,
mammograms, EKG’s, biopsies, and more) at no cost
- Complimentary clinical laboratory (blood) and urinalysis testing
- Study-related medical monitoring by the highest quality, first-rate medical teams
- Complimentary physical exams
- Compensation for time and travel
- Medical Insurance is not needed to participate
- You do not need to provide your social security number or be a U.S. Citizen
What is Informed Consent?
Every eligible study participant takes part in the Informed Consent process, which will explain the following in detail: the purpose of the study, the study design and procedures, what is expected of a study participant, the possible benefits and risks of participation, and how your personal is used and protected.
This process ensures that potential participants can have their questions answered and understand everything involved in the study to help them make an informed decision about participation. Participation in any clinical study is completely voluntary.
If you chose to participate, all study related information will be clarified in the Informed Consent Form (ICF), which the study doctor will provide and explain to you. You will be asked to review and sign the ICF to indicate that you are willing to take part in the study.
Why participate in a Clinical Trial?
Participating in a Clinical Trial helps find answers that lead to discoveries in improved treatment options. In Clinical Trials, researchers evaluate investigational medications not yet approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration under carefully controlled conditions. Clinical Trials are essential in bringing potential new treatment options to patient care and the advancement of medical knowledge.
