You can have a role in research that could change medicine forever.

Paid clinical research studies are being conducted at Heart Lung Centre to learn more about investigational medications that are not yet available to the public.

Are Clinical Trials safe?

This is a very important question. At Heart Lung Centre, all our trials are reviewed by an independent Research Ethics Committee, who ensure that our trials are as safe as possible. We are here to answer any questions.

Do I get paid?

Our trials vary greatly in terms of time spent on the unit and the number of procedures performed. Once we have identified a suitable trial, we can inform you of the potential compensation for your participation.

What facilities are there?

Whether you’re here for an hour or the whole day, we will endeavour to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The volunteer lounge will provide you with a space to pass the time pleasantly between assessments.

 

Why do you offer Clinical Trials?

Before a medication or new device for treatment of medical issues is available to the public, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) must review and approve the medication or device for public use. The FDA does this to learn more about the product and make sure that it is effective and safe.

To get FDA approval, the company that makes the medication or device is required to conduct clinical research studies.

The companies ask people to volunteer for clinical research studies. In these studies, volunteers are given the investigational medication or device and are evaluated by study doctors and staff members.

After clinical research studies are completed, the pharmaceutical company submits the study information to the FDA. The FDA reviews this information and decides if the investigational medication or device can become available to the public.
