P-One Clinic (Hachioji, Tokyo) is seeking female medical volunteers for an upcoming clinical study this May and June 2019.
Clinical studies (also called “clinical trials”) are scientific tests to check the efficacy and safety of new drugs, medical devices, and healthcare procedures. They are conducted with the cooperation of willing volunteers and governed by the strict legal and ethical guidelines of Good Clinical Practice (GCP).
Those who pass the initial selection will be invited to an information/consent session and screening health check (Apr 23rd or 26th). Volunteers who pass the screening will be invited to participate in a test of a drug. Starting in mid-May, they will stay at the clinic 3 times, for 4 nights each time, and return for a short follow up on June 25th (specific dates below).
