Clinical trials in which new medicine or treatment methods are tested on human subjects are a critical component of medical research. But what makes someone decide to participate in a clinical trial? Here are 10 reasons to volunteer for a clinical trial :

  1. If you are suffering from a disease, a clinical trial could gain you access to treatment otherwise unavailable to you.

  2. If you have exhausted all standard options for treatment, a clinical trial might offer a new option that helps where standard therapies have failed.

  3. Participating in a clinical trial is an important way to contribute to a vast body of medical research.

  4. Clinical trials need to include a diverse group of subjects to be fully effective. If you belong to a minority group, your participation can be even more vital.

  5. Your participation in a clinical trial could lead to a new treatment that helps someone you care about.

  6. Free medical care. Subjects in a clinical study will generally be monitored closely by a physician. All necessary exams, lab work and medications are typically provided free of charge.

  7. Participation in clinical trials can be a way to volunteer for a cause that is important to you.

  8. You might find a better treatment option with fewer side effects.

  9. In some cases you will be compensated for your time and inconvenience.

  10. You might learn something new!
