About Clinical Trials:  Overview

Safe and effective medicines start with rigorous research

Before a medication can be approved for treatment, it needs to be tested in a clinical trial (or study), to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the drug. Clinical trials take place in medical centers and clinics around the world and involve volunteers helping doctors to look at new ways to treat conditions.

Although there are many types of clinical trials, all US-based clinical trials must conform to strict rules set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These rules help protect the rights and safety of those who volunteer to take part in clinical trials. As always, participation in clinical studies is completely voluntary. Participants may withdraw at any time and for any reason.

At Biohaven, your well-being is our priority. It is extremely important to us that you are supported throughout your journey as a clinical trial participant.

Clinical trials represent the latest research about a condition and can potentially offer new treatment options as well as the opportunity to help contribute to advancing science by helping researchers find better treatments for conditions.
