Clinical trials

Many pharmaceutical companies are working on a cure for hepatitis B. These cures will target people living with chronic hepatitis B. The process includes clinical trials, which give patients a chance to get involved with developing a cure. 

The criteria for participating in these trials varies, so please check your eligibility with the clinical trial unit nearest you.

What is a clinical trial?

A clinical trial is a study that observes or treats patients to develop or discover new treatments or medications. It means scientists can accurately evaluate medications by studying their effects on healthy people and others who have the condition the drug is designed to target. 

Volunteer participants are vital to clinical trials. As a participant, your rights are paramount and will be respected. All trial operators will ensure prospective participants fully understand what's involved before giving consent.  

How can I get involved?

Please contact the clinical trial facility nearest you if you’re interested in being considered for trials or would like more information about what’s involved. It's also recommended you involve your doctor so you can make an informed decision.

People accepted into clinical trials may be reimbursed for their time, but this varies and is dependent on the trial.
