ScienHub Research Support

Soc Recerca

Platform for recruiting volunteers interested in participating in clinical trials aimed at improving medical research and global health.

We connect people interested in contributing to scientific advancement with studies evaluating new treatments and therapies. Volunteers can personally benefit and be part of medical progress by participating in trials that address a variety of conditions.

What is a clinical study?

A clinical study is a scientific investigation designed to evaluate the efficiency, safety and tolerability of medical treatments such as drugs, vaccines, devices or procedures in humans. These studies follow a specific protocol and go through different phases with the objective of collecting data that allow informed decisions to be made about the approval and use of these treatments in medical practice.

 

  • Pre-clinical phase

    Phase I

    Before a treatment reaches human clinical studies, laboratory tests and animal studies are conducted. These initial investigations seek to establish the safety and efficacy of the product, as well as to identify possible side effects.

  • Clinical phase

    Phase II and Phase III

    The main objective is to evaluate the efficacy of the treatment in question to treat or prevent a specific disease. The results of these phases are critical for commercialization approval, and health authorities conduct a rigorous risk/benefit and cost/effectiveness analysis. These phases involve clinical trials involving thousands of people.

  • Post-commercialization phase

    Phase IV

    Even after a medication or vaccine has been brought to market, Phase IV is conducted, which involves ongoing surveillance. During this phase, long-term efficacy is studied, and potential rare side effects are investigated. This monitoring contributes to the ongoing understanding of the product’s safety and efficiency under real-world conditions.

Why participate in a clinical study?

Participation in clinical studies is essential for the progress of medicine by contributing to the development of more effective and safer treatments.

  • It allows testing and validation of the efficiency and safety of new treatments, drugs, vaccines and procedures.
  • Improve existing treatments by comparing new approaches to current standards of care.
  • Offers the opportunity to test innovative therapies that could represent significant advances in the treatment of diseases.
  • Participants may be the first to benefit from new treatments before they are available to the general public.
  • Contributes to global medical knowledge and assist healthcare professionals in making evidence-based decisions.
  • For diseases without a known cure, participation in clinical studies may offer hope and potentially effective treatment options.

Who can participate in a clinical study?

Eligibility to participate in a clinical study depends on several factors and may vary according to the design and specific objectives of each study. Inclusion and exclusion criteria are designed to ensure the safety of participants and the validity of the results. Some criteria include: medical diagnosis, age, health status, medical history and previous treatments, among others.
