I've heard you'll cut my toe off?
There are plenty of urban myths in circulation about just what happens on a clinical trial. These range from cutting off your toes and stitching them back on to £10,000 to stop and restart your heart. However, these are just that: myths.
Volunteer safety is the number one priority of any clinical trial and no ethics committee (who must provide approval for a trial to go ahead) would ever deem such procedures as acceptable. Drug development is a highly regulated process with stringent safety guidelines that prevent any unethical procedures slipping through the system.
If you are worried about a story you have heard about clinical procedures, why not give our recruitment team a call to hear the truth about what happens during a clinical trial.
Or have you heard other stories about us, we'd love to hear from you.
