Consider volunteering for research studies for memory loss, pain, bi-polar disease, addiction and others! The information gained from clinical trials helps researchers find out if new medicines and/or treatments are safe for humans to use and if they produce the intended effect.
All clinical trials have guidelines about who can participate. Before joining a clinical trial, a volunteer must qualify for the study. The factors that allow volunteers to participate in a clinical trial are called “inclusion criteria” and the factors that disallow volunteers from participating are called “exclusion criteria.” These criteria may include age, gender, the type and stage of a disease, previous treatment history, and other medical conditions.

Some research studies seek participants with specific illnesses or conditions to be studied in a clinical trial, while others require healthy participants. Inclusion and exclusion criteria identify appropriate participants, promote participant safety, and ensure that researchers learn the information they need.
