The trials conducted in our unit require that you are at least 18 years old, you’re registered with a GP and you do not have an allergy severe enough to require the use of an epi-pen. We run numerous healthy volunteer trials and we also conduct trials requiring volunteers from certain patient groups. If you are on medication, your eligibility will depend on what medication you are taking and the clinical trial design, which varies from trial to trial. For each clinical trial to provide the level of information needed to understand how a new medicine works, volunteers can only take part in one trial at a time; there is usually a ‘wash out’ period of 3 months between the end of one trial and the start of another. After that, you’re free to apply for another trial. If you have questions about your eligibility for a trial, please contact our recruitment team and they can discuss which clinical trials may be suitable for you.
