It varies. Some studies involve only a weekend or two in the clinic, while other studies require longer confinement periods of up to several weeks. Post-study follow-up visits called outpatient visits for blood samples are sometimes necessary.
We refer each study protocol to an Institutional Review Board (IRB) composed of members of the public, including medical professionals, who are independent of the clinic and PPD. The IRB evaluates each study protocol to determine if it complies with international regulatory guidelines to ensure volunteer safety and well-being. The IRB is there to protect your rights, safety and well-being. The board reviews and approves all aspects of each study, including the type and dose of medicine that will be given to you, all of the measurements that will be conducted throughout the study and the payment you will receive.
