CLINICAL TRIALS

About Clinical Trials

All clinical trials have guidelines about who can participate. Inclusion/exclusion criteria helps produce reliable results in clinical research. These criteria are based on such factors as age, gender, the type and stage of a disease, previous treatment history, and other medical conditions. Before joining a clinical trial, a participant must qualify for the study. Some research studies seek participants with illnesses or conditions, while others need healthy participants. It is important to note that inclusion and exclusion criteria are not used to reject people personally. Instead, the criteria are used to identify appropriate participants and keep them safe. The criteria help ensure that researchers will be able to answer the questions they plan to study.

Participants give a case report and medical history to verify their conditions and provide the researcher with the demographics for the study. Clinical samples are not used to support the regulatory application for the clinical trial therefore requiring less documentation.

Protocols are established for the collection of clinical samples for research and development for new treatments of diseases. Depending on the study, material such as blood, plasma, urine or mucosal swabs may be required. Most clients usually request small sample volumes (less than 50ml). However, specimens can be processed and sampled to any quantity requested.
