What is a clinical trial?
Clinical trials are only possible thanks to the help of our volunteers. Becoming one of our clinical trial participants requires a few easy steps. After answering a few preliminary questions online, a member of Linear Clinical Research will contact you to arrange a screening visit. If you are eligible to participate, we will arrange for you to come and start the trial. Participants in our clinical trials are paid and receive their remuneration after their follow-up visit.
Clinical trials are a crucial part of the process of developing, licensing and bringing new life-changing, life-saving drugs and therapies to patients. Trials ensure that new treatments are both safe and effective, enabling medical practitioners and patients to use them confidently.
Some clinical trials are conducted to establish whether already-approved drugs can be used to treat different conditions, but most trials are for new drugs and innovations – a completely new way of treating a disease or illness, thereby providing choices and hope for patients.
