We’ve been a part of over 280 studies since 1974!
Eligible trial participants may receive free treatment and even additional compensation for their particular trial provided they participate fully in all necessary observation periods, reporting sessions with the doctors, etc. for the duration of the study.
Learn what it's like to be enrolled in our studies
Participating in a clinical trial is not unlike going to a doctor’s appointment. You will meet with the coordinator and investigator for the trial to determine whether you are eligible to participate in the trial, which may require lab work or additional evaluations. Once enrolled, participants attend a treatment visit to receive the medication or treatment, which may take 30 minutes to two hours depending on the medication, injectable product, laser or device that is being tested. In order to monitor the results, participants may be asked to return for a follow-up appointment weekly, monthly, or every three months, depending on the treatment.
In many cases, clinical trial sponsors often provide participants with compensation for their time. To participate in additional studies, participants must wait at least 30 days after concluding a trial before they can be considered eligible.
