Q What is the definition of a healthy adult volunteer?
The definition of a healthy volunteer is pretty straightforward—it’s a volunteer that does not suffer from an ailment or condition. The volunteer literally is healthy.
The trial may also require that the participant is not taking any medications. Healthy volunteers are essential to clinical studies, as they help provide comparison data for researchers studying the effects of drugs or other treatments on individuals with specific illnesses.
Before a trial begins, participants will first usually speak with a recruiter on the phone to introduce themselves and discuss their health status with the recruiter.
Following that, potential participants will usually then get a physical examination. At this point, the medial and research staff will determine if the participant’s level of health meets the requirements of the study.
Q Once I've decided to participate, what can I expect during a clinical trial?
During a clinical trial, doctors, nurses, social workers, and other health care providers might be part of your trial team. They will monitor your health closely. You will have more tests and medical exams than you would if you were not taking part in a clinical trial.
Your treatment team also may ask you to do other tasks. For example, you may have to keep a log about your health or fill out forms about how you feel. Some people will need to travel or stay in hospitals to take part in clinical trials.
