Clinical trials help researchers and doctors know whether a new medicine works, whether it works better in some people than in others, and which dose of new a medication will be safe for the people who take it. While this definition sounds relatively straightforward, there are various components that come into play throughout the clinical process. Throughout the process, it’s important for participants to be informed so that they can make decisions that work best for them.

A challenge that many people face when it comes to clinical trials is education. Either they’re not aware of a certain aspect of clinical trials, or there’s so much information in an internet search that it’s overwhelming to decide where to start.

If you’re a participant or caregiver looking for clinical trial information, it can be helpful to start with a basic overview. The infographic below provides 10 clinical trials facts you need to know.
