Patient Video - What was the clinical trial enrollment process like for you?
Julie shares her experiences with trying to enroll in a couple clinical trials – one in which she did not meet the eligibility criteria and one in which she was accepted to participate in. In both cases, she was in contact with a trial coordinator who reviewed the details of the trial with her, explained eligibility criteria, the potential side effects from the trial medication, the type of monitoring involved, and provided her with informed consent. From her experience and depending on the study, the enrollment process ranged from being lengthy to fairly quick.
