Frequently Asked Questions

What is a clinical study?

A clinical study tests new ways to prevent, detect or treat disease. These studies rely on volunteers to help develop better medicines and other treatment options.

Is there a placebo? What is a placebo?

People who qualify and choose to participate in this study will be randomly assigned to either the investigational drug or a placebo. Study participants have a 50% chance of receiving the investigational drug and a 50% chance of receiving a placebo. Neither the study participants nor the study staff will know who has received the investigational medicine or placebo.

A placebo is a substance with no active medicine. In this case, the placebo looks like the investigational medicine but does not contain the active ingredient.

What is informed consent?

An informed consent form is a document that explains all the study details, including any potential risks and benefits, and your rights and responsibilities during clinical trial participation. The study coordinator will review this document with you at the screening visit, and you will have the opportunity to ask questions. The purpose of informed consent is to make sure you have adequate information to make an informed decision about participating in a clinical trial.
