Even though clinical trials are volunteer, not all people who want to join a trial may be eligible. Much of the eligibility criteria will depend heavily on statistical factors that pertain to the specific clinical trial that you are considering signing up for, and the goal of the study. You will be screened to evaluate whether you meet the criteria. The process begins with finding a trial that relates most closely to your diagnosis and screening appointment. Anyone considering joining a clinical trial should consult with their doctor to get a professional opinion as to whether or not it is a safe idea from the start.
