Before you enroll in a clinical trial, you should discuss joining the trial with your healthcare provider or reach out directly to the clinical study team. Bring any questions you have to the study team when you meet them for your pre-screening. Important considerations include benefits and criteria, what you will have to do during the trial, and how long the trial will last.
Participants are always welcome to visit their usual healthcare providers during a trial, and sometimes it is important for your doctor to collaborate with the study team to ensure open communication about your treatment.
Participants should attend each scheduled trial visit. If you have a conflict, please contact your study team in advance to adjust your schedule.
After your participation ends, the study may continue for months or years. Usually, your specific results will not be shared with you until the trial ends, and sometimes they will never be shared. Once the results from all participants are collected and analyzed, they may be published publicly. Published results will never include any personally identifying information about individual participants.
