What does side effects mean?

Side effects are often defined as unwanted actions or impacts related to the experimental treatment.

In general side effects may include headaches, irritations of the skin, hair loss, nausea or other physical or physiological problems, however, this vary from study to study. For the specific side effects within a specific study, these will be desribed within the informed consent, which you will be informed about and read at the clinic. Clinical studies must be evaluated for both acute and long-term side effects.

Side effects often come from medications and treatment methods, which treat the disease but unfortunately may impact other parts or organs in the body. When you participate in a clinical study, you will get information about which side effects there may be, if any, in the trial.
