If you are lucky enough to have some extra free time this summer or are simply interested in contributing to the advancement of medicine, joining a clinical trial can be a great option. Today, we’ll overview some of the benefits of participating in clinical research.
Clinical research is only as representative as its diverse participants, so your participation can help broaden the scope of new treatments. By participating in a clinical trial, you help researchers determine whether a product is suitable for people of different demographics and with different symptom severity.
First look at New Products
If you get involved in clinical trials for consumer products, you’re able to try out new skincare, cosmetic, and supplement products before the general public. Often, brands will use clinical trials to gather marketable health claims about their products before launching new items or during the reformulation of old ones.
You will be able to test out these products before they are officially “Market ready,” - granting you access to wellness products you might not otherwise have found that may improve your quality of life.
Paying it Forward
When you participate in a clinical trial, even for non-essential medical items such as skincare or cosmetics, you are contributing to research that will improve products and treatments for people in the future. Clinical trials now can help people months or years down the line to find suitable products and treatments for their health concerns.
Particularly if you are participating with a health condition being targeted by a given product, your response in terms of symptom improvement and any additional changes or side effects is a vital contribution to the development of new products.
