What are the benefits and risks of participating in a clinical trial?
Keep in mind that each person’s experience is unique. Some people may experience risks, while others may not. Examples of some of the risks you may face are:
• Study drug risks, called side effects, may be caused by the study drug(s) themselves
• Study procedure risks may be caused by doing procedures like x-rays, by dyes in CT scans, or by needle punctures from blood collection
