Human Clinical Trials–the good, the bad, and what it takes to conduct your own.
Some student quotes:
“Today we learned that there are 3 phases to a clinical trial for humans, starting at Phase I with twenty people to Phase III with thousands of people.”
“I learned about how difficult is can be to get into human trials. Consenting is a huge part, that has been abused over the years.”
After determining if we were doing Human Subjects Research with an IRB checklist, we looked at a consent form to participate in a lung capacity study.
“Did you know you can actually measure your lung capacity? How cool is that?”
