Is It a Match? Choosing a Clinical Trial That’s Right for You

Searching on a computer for clinical trials
Are you thinking you may wish to participate in a clinical trial, but you aren’t sure how to get started? BrightFocus Foundation and Antidote – a third-party clinical trial matching service – have teamed up to make it easier to search for and find a clinical trial that is right for you.

Based on your response to a few questions, Antidote’s smart search engine quickly and easily finds a trial in your area, one that meets other criteria for your search.  To get started, or just to see how this matching program works, you can access the technology directly below:

Antidote is a third-party application that allows you to search for clinical trials. It is not affiliated with, or endorsed by, the BrightFocus Foundation or our website. Please see our disclaimer related to third-party sites for more information.

While on the BrightFocus website, take advantage of “one-stop shopping” and find numerous other resources and publications. Download our essential booklet “Clinical Trials: Your Questions Answered” for commonly asked questions about clinical trials, including what clinical trials are, the phases of clinical trials, how to participate, and more.

Also take advantage of our resource lists.  BrightFocus names 13 services that identify clinical trials and help you sign up as a volunteer or, at a minimum, help you decide whether you wish to participate in a trial. These services include the registries and data bases of the National Institutes of Health, www.clinicaltrials.gov or www.nih.gov/health/clinicaltrials
