I know it's been a while since I last posted, my only excuse is the snow and lots of it! When it's this cold my RA really gives me a hard time. I am looking to join a clinical trial in order to try a new medication that's not yet on the market. Clinical trials are a great way to get some excellent free medical care, and medications. There are a few rules you must follow in order to remain in the study. Sometimes they actually pay you to be in the trial. One of the biggest risks to being in a clinical trial is the possibility of receiving a placebo, or a "fake" medication. Placebos are used to make sure a patient is really getting some help or improvement from the real medication vs those not receiving the same medication.
