If I am selected for the trial, will I be on placebo?

Many of our trials are placebo controlled, which means that some people will receive a placebo, and some will receive the study drug. Sometimes you will receive a placebo for part of the study, and then switch over to the study drug for the rest of the study. Your study doctor will discuss this with you during your Screening visit.

Whether you receive placebo or study drug is decided by chance (like flipping a coin). In some studies the study is double-blind, which that means neither you nor your study doctor know which treatment you are receiving.  However in emergencies your study doctor can find out which treatment you are receiving.

Your study doctor will monitor your health to make sure you are doing well. You are free to withdraw from the study at any time if you feel like your condition is worsening.
