Study Volunteers

It is important for research volunteers to understand the general principles that apply to anyone taking part in the study:

  • Participation is entirely voluntary;
  • While you may or may not experience personal benefits as a result of taking part in the study, knowledge may be gained from your participation that may benefit others; and
  • At any time, patients may decide to discontinue their participation without any negative consequences.
