Why Phase I CT volunteers receive financial compensation?

12 December 2022

Have you ever wondered why Phase I Clinical Trial volunteers receive financial compensation?

Healthy volunteers who devote themselves to science have many burdens to overcome, such as hidden financial costs like travel, food, or caregivers. Partly because of these burdens, patient recruitment and retention are two of the most #challenging aspects of running clinical trials, and cost factors can also impact trial diversity.

Reimbursing participants for their time and covering associated costs compensates patients for their contribution to clinical development. While money should not incentivize patients to participate in clinical research, it is critical to value them as individuals that drive clinical trials forward.
