Will I be compensated or paid for participating in a clinical trial?


For fundamental ethical reasons, the participation in clinical trials testing participants with illnesses is usually not paid/compensated. But on the other hand the sponsoring companies normally commit to provide the investigational medicinal product free for the duration of the study and the participants typically will get excellent care from the physicians during the course of the study and this care will also be free.Trial participants may sometimes be eligible for reimbursement of expenses.
