What is a clinical trial?


Clinical trials are research studies that explore whether a medicine, treatment, or device is safe and effective for humans. These studies also may show which medicine, treatment or device works best for certain illnesses or groups of people. 


Who can participate in a clinical trial?


We recruit healthy volunteers and patients. Healthy volunteers are typically between 18 and 65, take no medications and are generally healthy. Patient clinical trials generally include people with a specific medical condition. The eligibility requirements usually vary between each trial. Any participation is voluntary and each trial has requirements as to who can enter the trial.


What are the requirements to be a healthy volunteer?


You may be a suitable healthy volunteer if you are:

  • Aged 18-65 years
  • Currently taking no medication
  • Within a healthy weight range.A healthy weight is determined by your BMI (Body Mass Index). This is a relationship between your height and your weight. A healthy BMI is somewhere between 18 and 30.
  • Have no significant past medical history
  • Have suitable lifestyle habits
  • Some studies require non-smokers, but others allow light smokers.
  • Consumption of small or moderate amounts of alcohol, typically if fewer than 14 alcoholic drinks per week.
  • Illicit drug use is not allowed and a drug test will be given during screening and before check-in.




  • 年龄在18到65岁之间
  • 目前没有服用药品
  • 体重在健康范围。健康体重取决于您的身体质量指数(BMI,Body Mass Index)。这是一种身高与体重的关系。健康BMI大概在18到30之间。
  • 没有严重医疗病史
  • 生活方式习惯适合
  • 一些实验需要不吸烟者,而有一些实验需要轻度吸烟者
  • 少量或适度饮酒,通常每周少于14杯酒精饮品
  • 不允许使用非法药品,并且在筛选期间和入住开始前都会进行毒品检测

This list is general in nature and exact requirements will vary study to study. Don’t worry if you are not eligible to participate in one study, as we will have many more!
