Frequently Asked Questions
What are clinical trials?
How can I participate in a clinical trial?
At the Charak Center, we take your mental health and wellness seriously. If you choose to participate in a clinical trial, rest assured that you are in good hands. Clinical trials are at the heart of all medical advances providing new ways to treat disease. Our clinical trials consist of new drug therapies or combination of drugs. The goal is to determine if a new treatment works. Our doctors conduct clinical trials according to strict rules that are set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These rules make sure that people who agree to be in a study are treated safely.
Will I be compensated for participation in a clinical trial?
Yes, you will be compensated for your time and your travel during the study. The amount will vary depending on the trial you are participating in, and there will be no cost for the study medications provided. Transportation can be provided as well.
What happens after the clinical trial is complete?
You will continue to see their regular provider for clinical care, and they can continue to be seen after the study has completed. Part of the study has a follow up visit done after the study has completed. Varies from study to study.
