If the clinical trial you are participating in involves an overnight stay at our facility, you will be checked in at a previously determined date along with other study volunteers like yourself. You’ll have a room to stay in throughout your visit. Each day, you’ll be administered the investigational medication, and your readings will be regularly monitored to observe your body’s reaction. You’ll be tested again after each dosing to determine how the medication is influencing your readings, and to make sure, above all, that you are safe and in good health. You will meet with a doctor periodically throughout the study to verify your good health, and to determine if you are experiencing any side effects from the medication.
During your stay, you will be provided with three meals and snacks every day, and you will have access to amenities to help you pass the time (Netflix, video games, internet and computer access, etc.). For longer stays, you’ll even have the opportunity to visit with friends and family. Once your stay is complete, you’ll be checked out and called back for any follow-up visits that may be required in the study’s protocol. These visits can range anywhere from a few days to a few weeks after you have completed your stay.
