Clinical Frequently Asked Questions
How much do these studies pay?
Our studies pay different amounts depending on the study in which you are eligible to participate. We usually pay between $800 and $3900. We remunerate in Canadian dollars.
How long do your studies go for?
Our studies vary in length. You may be asked to stay for 24 hours or up to a few days at a time spaced out over a number of weeks, with some studies requiring return blood draws.
Do you allow smokers in the study?
Yes. We accept smokers for some of our studies but others are for non-smokers only. Some studies require that you abstain from smoking for a certain period of time.
What kind of drugs do you test? Are there any side effects?
We conduct studies to compare Apotex generic formulation against brand name over the counter medications and prescription drugs already being sold on the market. Before we can conduct a study, an Independent Ethics Board (REB) reviews all study protocols for safety issues and subject rights. As with any drug, there is a possibility of experiencing an adverse reaction to some ingredients. You will be given information in writing about possible side effects specific to the drug you will be taking.
Are these studies regulated?
Yes. The various agencies across the world include the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Canadian Therapeutic Directorate (TPD), European Agency for Evaluation of Medical Products (EMEA), and Australia Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) to name a few.
Is my participation confidential?
All records relating to your identity and study participation are confidential as per the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act.
