New to Clinical Trials

A clinical trial tests an experimental medicine to see how well it works for different groups of patients. We’re here to help explain various aspects of a clinical trial. Here are answers to the most common patient questions.

Purpose of a clinical trial

Purpose of a clinical trial

New drugs are tested in clinical trials before they are approved by Administración Nacional de Medicamentos Alimentos y Tecnología Médica (ANMAT) as a treatment.

How clinical trials work

Clinical trial investigators follow specific research plans called protocols. Protocols are designed so key research questions can be answered by comparing different investigational treatments. Specific results from each treatment group are measured and then compared.

What to expect in a clinical trial

What to expect in a clinical trial

Each trial is different, so it’s important for you to understand the potential risks and potential benefits. Once enrolled in a trial, you will have a dedicated care team that is with you every step of the way – answering any questions and concerns you may have. Taking part in a clinical trial is voluntary. You may choose to leave the trial at any time.

Why should I participate?

Clinical trials typically test new ways to treat a disease, so you’re potentially helping others and contributing to knowledge about the disease. Find out more about our trials and see if any might be a match for you.

What happens when a clinical trial is over

What happens when a clinical trial is over

When you finish a clinical trial, you may have many questions. Members of your care team, as well as the study coordinator or study investigator, are in the best position to help you plan what to do next. After a trial is over, we welcome you and your loved ones to participate in our clinical trial community and share what inspires you with others.
