Participate in a Study
When you’re thinking of ways to make the world a better place, THINK THEOREM.
Although cures for many devastating diseases and medical conditions have already been found, much work still remains to ease suffering in the world. The pharmaceutical and medical device industries are doing their part by developing innovative new ways to treat and cure a wide variety of diseases and conditions, but they can’t do it alone.
Before new drugs and medical devices can be marketed to the public, they must prove they are safe and that they work. Clinical studies are one of the last steps required before a drug can be made available for use by the general public.
About Clinical Studies
Theorem Clinical Research is a contract research organization that designs and conducts clinical studies to test drug products and medical devices for major companies around the world. Through a carefully controlled medical and regulatory process, participants like you are given drugs that have already been studied extensively in labs but not necessarily in humans. Doctors and nurses then check you regularly (checking blood pressure or taking blood samples, for example) at prescribed intervals to gather data that will help scientists determine the drug's efficacy.
Specific protocols vary from study to study, but patient safety is always our primary concern. The staff members who administer each trial are highly skilled and the procedures they follow are rigorous. Drug compounds under consideration have already undergone extensive testing in the laboratory and in live animals, and the protocol and study design of each trial has been certified by an independent Institutional Review Board or Ethics Committee.
You must sign an informed consent form before you can take part in a trial. This document describes precisely what the study is about, the expected outcomes and the possible risks of participation.
