How Opin matches you to clinical trials and research studies?
What is a clinical trial and research study?
Clinical trial and research study is an essential testing process that all new medicines, diagnostics and medical devices must go through to ensure they are safe and effective before they are approved and registered for use by your doctor or available in your local pharmacy.
All clinical trials and research studies are registered with government bodies in each country and require approval to be undertaken. All clinical trials and research studies are free of charge to patients. Every clinical trial and research study requires healthy volunteers before moving into participating patients with a specific condition. Healthy volunteers are often reimbursed for their time to participate.
Clinical trials and research studies are also an important learning opportunity for the healthcare sector in every country, in training doctors, nurses and allied health professionals. Clinical trials and research studies are very important to medical researchers and scientists as they are a critical test for exciting breakthroughs and innovative ideas that if successful, could have a very significant impact on hundreds of thousands if not millions of people’s lives.
How do I get matched to a clinical trial and research study?
Opin hosts a database of every active registered clinical trial and research study in the world. With a small amount of information about you, we can match you with trials looking for participants near where you live or work, and within the medical condition that you are interested in.
If you would like to proceed and participate in a clinical trial and research study we can help you through the enrollment process too.
Whenever new trials are opened up and start looking for patients, we automatically check them to see if you are a match and then send you an alert, keeping you up to date with research.
You can also save your search to your profile as well as share it with your family, carers or friends. Learning about clinical trials and research studies, what’s involved and if there is one right for you is the first step.
