What is the procedure for participating in a study?

After you’ve inquired by phone or through the website about being a study participant, you will be added to our participant database. A Novum recruiter will then contact you and ask you a few personal and general health questions. If you meet the criteria for one of our clinical studies, we will schedule your visit to the clinic for a screening appointment.

Do I have to have the particular condition that the drug is used to treat in order to participate in a study?

No, in most of our studies we are testing for absorption of the drug and we require healthy participants.

Back to Top

Will I be paid?

Yes, our participants will be paid a study fee based upon the length and complexity of the study. If the study requires several visits you will be given a progress payment at each visit. The bulk of the money will be paid by check at the end of the study.

Back to Top

Do study participants stay overnight?

Most of our studies involve an overnight stay. Some stays require only one night with us. Frequently, studies involve a number of overnight stays that extend over two or more visits. For example, you would arrive on a Friday evening and would leave on a Sunday morning for a total of two weekends.

Will meals be provided during my stay?

Yes. Novum will provide all meals to you that we get catered in from various local restaurants. This includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and an evening snack.

Can I leave the facility after checking in?

If you want to complete the study, once you are checked into a study you cannot leave to go to work or perform other outside activities. You can, of course, leave at any time but you will only be compensated for the time of the study you complete.
