According to a recent survey, 86% of all U.S. clinical trials fail to recruit
the required number of participants on time. Never have there been so many
studies of promising therapies for food allergies-but without qualified
participants, this life-saving research cannot move forward. By participating in
a clinical trial, your family will contribute directly to the search for better
treatments and a cure.
Of course, participating in a research study is
an important commitment. You're sure to have questions about the therapy being
tested, the medical exams you'll need to take, the demands on your time, safety
issues, and more.
To learn more, check out the following resources,
which provide information on current food allergy clinical trials, how these
studies work, questions to ask if you're thinking of participating, and more.
