Some companies are taking transparency one step further by building sites that direct unsuitable candidates to alternative trials sponsored by rivals.
The most commonly asked question by the volunteers of any clinical trial recruitment process is the protection given to them. There are a number of measures that are taken to ensure that the participants of the trial are well protected and safe during the trial. The concerned authorities constantly review the protocols of every trial to ensure that it is done ethically and the patients' rights are protected. Apart from this, the FDA provides oversight for clinical trial testing of medical devices or drugs. Prior to human clinical trials, the FDA reviews the applications for the new treatments and medications to ensure that the studies and researches have protections in place for the volunteers. The completely informed consent forms of the patients are one of the most important pieces of the puzzle of any clinical trial that protects the volunteers. Any changes in the mind of the volunteers enable them to withdraw from the trail immediately, ensuring their complete safety.
Clinical research trainings are given to every professional involved in the trial. Clinical research trainings are continuously updated based on the disease and development of technology to ensure the complete safety of the participants of the trial.
