Clinical Trials For Injectables: Should You Participate?

In order for an injectable to be approved by the FDA, it must undergo clinical trials. These are the medical studies of a drug or device to collect data about its safety and efficacy. Doctors who participate in clinical trials must carefully review their findings.

If you are given the opportunity to participate in a clinical trial, tread cautiously and ask for as much information as possible. If the trial is an approved FDA clinical trial, the doctor must inform you of this if you choose to take part.

You should never feel pressured or compelled to participate in a trial, and you should not participate without a full understanding of the potential risks to your health and safety.
