How are lab tests performed?

As a clinical trial participant, you could be required to go to a clinical trial site, a local lab, or could have a health care practitioner visit your home.

Depending on the study, if there are lab tests required, you may be able to go to a lab close to our home.  In other cases, you may go to the study clinic to have the lab tests performed by study staff.  On other studies, you may be able to have a nurse or other trained staff visit you in your home to collect blood or other specimens for required lab tests.
