Why Are Clinical Trials So Important ?

In order for medications and medical devices to be ensured safe and effective, they must undergo testing and approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) through clinical trials before being released to the public. These trials play a vital role in shaping modern medicine, extending lifespans, and preventing the spread of life-threatening illnesses.

Every medication, vaccine, or device available on the market has gone through the clinical trial process. With advances in technology, we have the opportunity to further eradicate diseases and improve global well-being. However, this requires volunteers like you to participate in clinical trials and ensure that the newest and most effective medications can be made available to the public without delay.

Benefits of Participating in Clinical Trials

There are several benefits to participating in a clinical trial, including:

  1. Contributing to Medical Research
  2. Access to New Treatments
  3. Comprehensive Health Checkups
  4. Opportunity to Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
  5. Potential Financial Benefits

How Can I Participate in Clinical Trials

Study participation is simple. Depending on the type of study, certain requirements must be met before a person can be part of a clinical trial. Most often these requirements are related to age, health, and ethnicity.

Once a person has expressed interest, there will be a screening to confirm that they meet the requirements of the study. After this, they will be briefed on the nature of the study, and instructed on scheduling and other important aspects of the clinical trial.

Types of Clinical Trials and Volunteers

At Altasciences LA , we not only perform studies with healthy volunteers, but work with a range of participants, including pediatric, geriatric, and other special populations, with a unique specialization working with volunteers of Asian descent. We have a high-level of expertise in a wide range of unique study types requiring different types of volunteers, including: renal (Kidney) impairment, diabetes, dermatology, pregnant, allergy/asthma, hypertension/high blood pressure, cholesterol, dyslipidemia, and more.

Am I Eligible for a Clinical Trial ?

Study participation is simple. Depending on the type of study, certain requirements must be met before a person can be part of a clinical trial. Most often these requirements are related to age, health, smoking status, BMI involving height and weight and ethnicity.

Once a person has expressed interest, there will be a screening to confirm that they meet the requirements of the study. After this, they will be briefed on the nature of the study, and instructed on scheduling and other important aspects of the clinical trial.

Clinical Trial Safety

Our volunteers are our greatest asset, and their safety is paramount. Our trained medical personnel can not only provide the highest standard of care, but can respond to any situation or emergency. We’ve planned for every possible risk and have a plan to respond, in order to keep our volunteers as safe as possible and ensure their health is maintained throughout their participation in research and beyond.

Before we conduct any study related testing, we always implement a process of informed consent, where volunteers are screened and given a complete overview of procedures and study time frames. If at any point during the trial a volunteer feels overwhelmed or adversely affected, they are free to withdraw consent.

During inpatient stays, we have licensed medical staff onsite at all hours of the day. We also provide transportation, meals, and real-time consultation with support staff, making volunteer health and wellness our foremost priority.
