Why do people participate in research or clinical trials?

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), people participate in clinical trials for a variety of reasons. Healthy volunteers say they participate to help others and to contribute to moving science forward. Participants with an illness or disease also partici-pate to help others, but also to possibly receive the newest treatment and to have the additional care and attention from the clini-cal trial staff. Clinical trials offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future.

Clinical trials can also look at other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses.
