How is my safety taken care of?

When it comes to clinical studies, your safety as a participant is pivotal. Clinical studies are conducted according to the guideline of good clinical practice and the ethical principles, described in the Declaration of Helsinki II. The Declaration of Helsinki secures your right to e.g.:

  • Self-determination: If you do not wish to participate in the clinical study, you are able to leave at any point.
  • Informed decisions: At any point within the clinical study, you will have the right to make informed decisions, both at the beginning (informed consent) and during the clinical study.
  • Welfare of the participant: The welfare of the participant must always be prioritised above the interest of science and society. This means, that the clinical study must not prioritise the medical outcome highest.

During the clinical study, all results are written down and reported to various government agencies, such as the Research Ethics Committees (REC) within the EU, USA's Institutional Review Boards (IRB), and Health Canada's Research Ethics Board (REB) and respective agencies. Your personal data will remain anonymous and will not be mentioned in the reports. This enables you as a study participant to get information about the study in an anonymized way and to get help, if something unexpected should occur during the clinical study.
