Why we need clinical trials
Before new treatments can be used to help people with diabetes, they must be carefully tested to determine their safety and effectiveness. Clinical trials rely on volunteers to help them work out if treatments are safe, what the side effects are and whether they are more effective than existing treatments. By taking part in trials, you could play an important role in helping to prevent diabetes, to develop new and better treatments, or to find a potential cure.
Things to consider
If you would like to take part in a clinical trial you should always consult your healthcare team and speak to the healthcare professionals involved in the study.
