We will review the informed consent document with you to explain all of the features of the study and the medication under investigation, as well as any side effects you are likely to encounter.

Why participate as a patient in a clinical study at Marin Endocrine Care & Research?
People volunteer to participate in a drug study for many different reasons. They may share an intellectual interest in new therapies that might help them or they may want to contribute to scientific data gathering. Some patients benefit by receiving medical care assessments, laboratory studies and medications at no charge but all must realize that research involves some time, some risk and a willingness to carefully follow the medical research protocols. Patients must work with staff to bring about optimal clinical and research results with our maximal safety.
