What happens during the screening phase of a Clinical Trial?
You will be interviewed regarding your medical history and all current medications. Screening exams, tests, procedures, physical exams will be done according to the requirements of each particular study.
These procedures were discussed in the initial interview and on the Informed Consent form. After all of the screening tests and procedures are complete, and you are considered eligible to continue according to the study guidelines, you will then start active participation in the study. Some patients may ultimately not qualify for the study.
