Many people participate in clinical trials; some are healthy and others have illnesses. A healthy volunteer is a participant with no known significant health conditions who participates in clinical research to test a potential new therapy. Research procedures and therapies with healthy volunteers are designed to develop new knowledge. Investigators learn about the disease process by comparing the patient group to the healthy volunteers. Some of these clinical trials require major time commitment on behalf of the volunteer while other studies may require minimal time commitment.
