Volunteer/Participate in a clinical research study.
There are a variety of reasons why people seek to participate in clinical studies. The opportunity to try a potential new treatment that may be better than the current standard is a strong motivator. A patient may gain access to promising new therapies that are not widely available. Participants also enjoy more active involvement in their own health care regimen, taking advantage of frequent monitoring during the clinical study.
