WHY DO WE NEED CLINICAL TRIALS?

All medications from simple paracetamol for headache through to life saving cancer drugs must go through the clinical trial process before they can be prescribed by Doctors. Without Volunteers like you we would not be able to develop new treatments for future generations.
All clinical trials are voluntary. You always have the right to choose whether or not you will take part in a clinical trial and you have the right to leave a clinical trial at any time, for any reason.

A leading specialist clinical research facility working with the pharmaceutical industry to identify potential new treatments for conditions such as Asthma, Bronchitis and Emphysema and now many more therapeutic areas.

We at the MEU want to deliver rewarding research to improve clinical care whilst also rewarding our volunteers for their continued support.
