  • A new treatment may not be more beneficial than a current/standard treatment
  • Depending on the trial, you may be given a placebo, meaning no treatment
  • Uncomfortable and time-consuming testing may be involved
  • Substantial travel and doctor visits during the trial may be necessary
  • The new treatment may work well for some and not for others
