Clinical Trials Q & A
Why should I participate in a clinical trial?
Clinical trials are safe, medically supervised studies designed to evaluate the effectiveness of a potential treatment before it gets FDA approval. Medications are heavily tested long before they’re ready for use on humans in clinical trials, so you have nothing to worry about. You should consider participating in a clinical trial if:
- Traditional asthma or allergy treatments haven’t been effective
- You were recently diagnosed with asthma or allergies
- Your current medication is causing side effects
Not only do practitioners monitor you regularly while you’re taking the drug (or placebo), they even compensate you for your time during the study.
Am I a candidate for a clinical trial?
Most clinical trials offered at Allergy and Asthma Clinic of Central Texas have certain parameters required for study participants. Because each type of clinical trial needs different types of research participants, you might be a candidate if you’re:
- Generally healthy
- Currently taking medications to manage asthma or allergies
- Suffering from minor to severe asthma or allergies
As the top clinical research clinic in Texas for allergies and asthma, the team at Allergy and Asthma Clinic of Central Texas regularly has open clinical trials. The best way to find out if you’re a candidate is to schedule a consultation. Even if you’re not a match for a current study, the team can keep your information on file and contact you when a clinical trial comes along that matches with you.
What happens during a clinical trial?
Each clinical trial is unique, although there are certain steps you take with each one. After being accepted into a clinical trial, the team at Allergy and Asthma Clinic of Central Texas schedules you for a thorough evaluation with one of the research physicians.
This comprehensive exam allows your practitioner to find out about your medical history, which treatments you’ve tried, and gather any essential blood or urine samples.
Once you’ve started your asthma or allergy medication, the team at Allergy and Asthma Clinic of Central Texas schedules you for follow-up visits. The team provides comprehensive care during and after your clinical trial. Your dedication to the study is important for the future outcome of the tested medication and its potential FDA approval.
