As scientists and doctors learn more about NASH, they may develop better ways to treat it. However, in order to develop new therapies for NASH, researchers must conduct clinical trials.
What are clinical research studies (trials)?
What is informed consent?
Before enrolling in a clinical trial, you must sign an Informed Consent Form (ICF). The ICF contains information about the study, including
- Study goals
- How long the study will last
- Potential benefits and risks of participation
- A description of the tests and procedures you will receive during study participation
- How we will use and secure your personal data
What does study participation involve?
Study participation usually involves visiting a clinic regularly, taking or receiving an investigational medicine, and having assessments to monitor your health. You can still see your regular doctor, but you should let them know that you are participating in a study.
Participation in clinical research studies is your choice, and you may stop at any time.
