Study Volunteers: We Love And Appreciate our Patient Volunteers

Only through the dedication of study patient volunteers do new drugs make their way to market

“The Doctors Did an Amazing Job With My Treatment”

““I recently participated in a study for low back pain. Everyone at Studyops made me feel comfortable and confident in my decision to do the trial. The doctors did an amazing job with my treatment and my pain was way more manageable than before the trial. The results are exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much for everything!” – Chad C., Patient Volunteer

Clinical trials are designed to collect pivotal knowledge about investigational medications that may benefit future patients and current research participants. The trials are designed to assess both the safety and effectiveness of a product and are conducted under rigorous U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines. All prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medications have been through clinical trials. Information or data gathered during a study is reviewed by the pharmaceutical company to support any claim of safety and/or effectiveness. That data is then submitted to the FDA, which reviews the data and approves or denies a new drug to be available by prescription or over-the-counter use.
While our clinical trials involve researching investigational medications and therapies, the trials are closely regulated by government agencies, including the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) and IRB (Institutional Review Board), to ensure the safety of the research study and to determine the risks involved.
By participating, you have a chance to contribute to the healthcare of tomorrow and take a step towards improving and educating yourself about your own health. You may have a positive impact on the health of millions — perhaps even your own friends and loved ones. Research studies can provide you access to medical options and medications not available through any other means. Generally, all study procedures, doctor visits and study medications are provided at no cost to you, and you are compensated for your time and travel expenses. Additional financial compensation may be available to qualified volunteers. You do not need health insurance in order to participate.
We not only welcome repeat volunteers, we have counted on them for many successful clinical trials. As long as you meet the requirements outlined for a particular study, you can participate in as many as you’d like. We just ask that you participate in only one at a time.
Each research study has specific requirements that must be met for you to qualify. If you don’t happen to meet the requirements for a particular trial, don’t worry! This is common given the specific nature of the requirements. New opportunities become available frequently. You can always check our website for enrolling studies or complete the Volunteer form and you will be notified about new studies that Studyops is conducting that match your search terms. We value every potential patient volunteer and will work to help you find a clinical trial right for you.
What is the purpose of the trial?

How can I involve my family doctor in the care I receive?

Is the new study drug FDA-approved for any other conditions?

Why do some studies use a placebo (an inactive product that looks like the study drug)?

Can I take my regular medications while I’m involved in a study?

Will the study cost me anything?

What happens if I have a problem while I’m enrolled in a study?

What if I decide that the study is no longer in my best interest?

How can I get my family and friends involved in a study?

What Patients Have To Say

“I started a trial less than two months ago and am very pleased with the results. The doctors and nurses were always happy and cheery, and did what they needed to do to get me better. The staff was always very kind and treated me quickly and well. I would recommend a Studyops to my friends and family.”
Nikki M., Patient Volunteer
“I doubt anyone can say they ‘loved’ going to a doctor, but if you need it, Studyops and the team are the people to trust. All of them kept my desired outcome and comfort top of mind.”
Rob S., Patient Volunteer
“The doctors and the staff were fantastic: very supportive and professional. The process was unreal. I didn’t think it would be this simple, easy or painless. The way I felt before and the way I feel now are completely different. It’s been a wonderful experience.”
Terri J., Patient Volunteer
“With over 20 years of hospital and healthcare experience, I am very selective regarding physicians. I would recommend the Studyops team for anyone seeking an alternative to standard medications.”

Maurice Z., Patient Volunteer

Participation Is As Easy As 1-2-3!

Step 1

Choosing to Participate

Before you agree to participate in any clinical trial, you will read the informed consent and privacy policy to learn all of the details, ask as many question as you would like and if you decide to continue, sign the form. The key is to understand your responsibilities. You can always decide to decline participation and have the option to withdraw at any time.

Step 2

Screening & Qualification

All study volunteers must go through an extensive screening visit, usually getting a physical exam, giving blood and urine and providing complete medical records. If your history and screening results match the study requirements, you are qualified and can continue. Some studies require additional procedures and visits before you start the medication.

Step 3

Patient Responsibilities

If you decide to participate in a clinical trial, following the rules is very important for the researches to determine the efficacy of the medication. We will discuss, in detail, the do’s and don’ts of staying in complete compliance. We will also ask you to report any potential adverse event and to bring all of your study materials with you to every visit.
