Clinical trials are the last phase, in a long list of phases, of research done before a new drug or treatment is approved for the market. These trials can vary in size from a single center in one place to multicenter trials in multiple places. Generally, people must meet certain criteria to participate in these trials. These patients benefit from receiving otherwise unavailable treatments. The Immune Tolerance Network has a great checklist to help you decide if clinical trial participation is right for you.
