Research at the NCRC - Clinical Studies
What are clinical studies and why they are necessary?
Clinical studies are the preliminary stage before new treatments are introduced, and are thus necessary for the approval of new therapies. Patients who participate in studies receive therapy which is based on the latest research and is regularly checked by doctors and scientists.
The advantage for the study patient is access to new means of prevention, treatment, or diagnosis. Moreover, specialist investigating doctors provide close attentive medical care within a framework of comprehensive explanation and intensive support from the entire study team. Finally, by participating, the patient is contributing to medical progress, from which future patients will also benefit.
How can I take part in a study?
If you are interested in participating in a clinical study, a doctor will provide you with precise information about the purpose and course of the study. Your participation is voluntary and you can withdraw your consent at any time.
In the course of the study, you will be invited to a number of “visits” at which the doctor will examine you. During these appointments, the doctor has a chance to observe how the new therapy is working, whether it is well tolerated, and/or whether the new diagnostic measure can provide the expected results.
