Trials are conducted to find out if a new medicine or new use of an approved medicine is safe. You should therefore not take part in a clinical trial thinking the treatment you get will „treat you‟ – it is still only being research to see if it will treat you. Sometimes you will do better, and sometimes you will not. The hope will be that the treatment will do good, but there is no guarantee when you are receiving a compound still being researched. This is something you must understand before you agree to take part in a trial. Always make sure the researchers tell you all the possible risks and benefits before you take part.
