There are lots of benefits for participating in a clinical study, and the benefits will vary with your circumstances and medical history.
You will be a part of something for the greater good. Study participation is needed to keep clinical research going. The more people who participate in clinical studies, the greater the likelihood that there will be a breakthrough in medicine.
Study participants may be able to get access to new medications that are not available elsewhere.
The third benefit is that you will learn much more about the condition(s) that you currently have.
Participants in a clinical study are closely monitored by doctors and other health professionals throughout the course of the study. You will receive a personal level of medical attention at no cost.
You may be remunerated for your time and effort in participating research.
