Volunteer safety is the highest priority of any research study. As a potential volunteer, our qualified staff will discuss the entire research process with you to help you fully understand the study participation. Participation in a clinical trial is completely voluntary and you can withdraw from a study at any time.

How is safety ensured?

Your medical condition is monitored during your participation in the study. Our staff keeps your doctor informed of your progress throughout. Clinical studies must be approved and monitored by an Institutional Review Board, an independent committee outside of Facey.  These committees are composed of scientists, physicians and community advocates who meet to review and monitor clinical studies.

In addition, our studies are approved and monitored by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
