Why Do Trials Need Volunteers?

Why Do Trials Need Volunteers?

Across the board, clinical trials face a critical need for volunteers. Clinical research is a key step on the path to developing new therapies — and ultimately, a cure — for Parkinson’s disease. Unfortunately, low enrollment in clinical trials is one of the most significant problems facing Parkinson’s drug development.

Eighty-five percent of clinical trials are delayed and thirty percent never even get off the ground due to a lack of volunteers. In fact, an estimated 1 million people live with Parkinson’s in the US — yet trials enroll an average of just one volunteer per month.

It can be difficult to find trials in your area that are right for you. Fox Trial Finder matches you with trials that need you based on your location, medical history, and other basic information. Boosting the number of volunteers participating in clinical trials is critical to PD research and progress toward a cure.

By participating in research, you give something money can’t buy. No amount of funding or other resources can make up for a lack of clinical trial volunteers.
