We are excited to announce that our Clinical Trials Currently Recruiting in Canada page was out of date. We are excited to announce that there are so many new clinical trials in the works for hep C treatments that our recently updated information about recruiting clinical trials needed updating again.
Our Clinical Trials Currently Recruiting in Canada page has been updated with new information about clinical trials recruiting or soon-to-be recruiting across Canada. While updating the page, what stood out was just the sheer volume of trials needing to be added to the list or taken off of the list of clinical trials about to begin.
Wondering about Participating in Clinical Trials?
Those participating in clinical trials must meet certain criteria, and, in addition to taking the drugs, are asked to complete questionnaires and submit blood work and other lab results for research purposes. As well as a commitment to the course of treatment, there is also a time commitment to complete all of the data collection required as a participant in the clinical trial.
For those considering participating in clinical trials, talk with a health care provider you trust about your options. Try to gather as much research as you can, and talk with other people who have also participated in clinical trials.
Interested in clinical trials? Beyond our Clinical Trials Currently Recruiting in Canada page, there is also addition information about clinical trials on our Considering Treatment page and our Participating in Clinical Trials page. ClinicalTrials.gov is also a great resource and includes additional information about clinical trials being planned or taking place around the world.
