Understand your condition better.
Not every treatment in a clinical trial will be a magic bullet for every participant. But even if a trial you’re in doesn’t match you with the perfect medication for you, it could get you closer to understanding what types of drug formulations your body responds best to.
Help others like you.
Your participation in clinical trials gets researchers closer to finding better treatments for people like you — not just those with the same condition, but those who are also part of the same ethnic, gender, and age groups. Participating in clinical trials, especially if you have a condition that’s genetic, helps create better treatment options for the generations coming after you.
