NIHSeniorHealth - Information on Participating in Clinical Trials

Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect or treat disease, and many of today’s medical treatments are possible because of what clinical trials have found. Participants in trials have made these scientific breakthroughs possible. Thousands of volunteers -- people with specific diseases or conditions and healthy people of all ages and racial and ethnic groups -- are needed for trials and studies going on now or in the future. See what’s involved in a clinical trial and find out about the benefits and risks, as well as the safeguards.

To learn more, check out the Tip Sheet, “Clinical Trials and Older People” or visit these websites: Clinical Trials.gov and NIH Clinical Research Trials and You.

The information on Participating in Clinical Trials was developed for NIHSeniorHealth by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at NIH.
