CenExel CBH is seeking healthy youth volunteers (ages 3-17) to participate in clinical studies.
Why participate in a clinical research study?
Clinical studies are what allow all medications and vaccines to come to market, including drugs that treat pain, infections, and various medical conditions. Without clinical studies, no medications would be available for use and they are only possible with the help of participants like you. Compensation varies by study and time involved, and whether you complete all visits and procedures in the study. Every volunteer study at CenExel CBH is approved and monitored by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to make sure the risks are as low as possible and are worth any potential benefits to the volunteer.
Why does CenExel CBH need Healthy Volunteers?
Volunteers are an integral part of the research process. People with a particular disease as well as healthy people both can play a role in contributing to medical advances. Medical researchers can be provided valuable information when comparing healthy volunteers with those who have specific illnesses.
Medical research continues to bring new medication and treatments to help make all our lives better. The FDA requires clinical research, trials, or medical studies, to test the efficacy of these new drugs. CenExel CBH is a national leader in conducting these clinical research studies.
The main objective during a clinical trial on healthy volunteers is safety. Medical researchers need to determine how a certain drug is metabolized by the body. Drugs can be administered by a variety of routes depending on the intended site of action, drug metabolism, chemical properties of the medication and ease of use.
CenExel CBH needs healthy volunteers to participate in a variety of clinical trials, particularly for vaccines (e.g., RSV, HPV, COVID-19, etc.).
Clinical Trial Compensation
As medical research continues to bring new medication and treatments that help make all our lives better, healthy volunteers can experience the satisfaction of participating and assisting in the development these drugs. CenExel CBH compensates you for your time, travel, and participation in the study.
Before you and your child decide whether to take part, we will provide you with all the information you need, and you both will have a chance to ask questions. You and your child will be given plenty of time to decide about taking part in the study. This study will help us learn more about the investigational medication.
For more information, please call a member of the study team. By contacting us, your child is under no obligation to take part in the study.
