The steps of a clinical study
Before the stay expand_more
Become aware of the proposed studies
Check out the studies available online or by calling us at 1-866-262-7427. A brief telephone interview with one of our recruiters will verify if you can participate in a study. Subsequently, the recruiter will describe the studies offered according to your availability and will give you an appointment for a medical examination.
Prior to the medical examination, an informed information and consent form accurately describing the drug in question, the duration of the study, planned tests, expected effects and potential risks will be provided. At this point, our medical staff will discuss the study with you and answer all your questions. You can then make the decision to participate in the study or not. It is recommended to inform your general practitioner and discuss with your doctor about your participation in a clinical study.
Health status assessment
Thereafter, your state of health will be evaluated as part of a medical examination. Upon receipt of the results of your examination and following the evaluation of your file by a doctor, one of our recruiters will contact you to confirm whether you are eligible to study. Please note that all information collected during the study will remain confidential.

If this is the case, the average length of stay is 36 hours. Our facilities have rest areas. You will sleep in a room that can accommodate a maximum of 8 participants or in a dormitory. In addition, all meals are provided. Between tests, you will have a lot of free time. At any time of day or night, you will be supervised by our staff who will be happy to answer all your questions and all your needs. Some restrictions will have to be respected. You may be asked to avoid drinking alcohol or not eating certain foods during the study.

Some of the medical procedures and tests may may be performed more than once, depending on the study.These procedures and tests may include, but are not limited to, the following:
- urine sample and blood sample
