Are clinical trials safe?

The safety and well-being of the people taking part are placed above all else in a clinical trial.

Since the trial medicine is a new treatment, there could be side effects that are still unknown. The trial doctor will look closely for any side effects of taking part in a trial and will make sure that medical care is given as needed.


There are strict rules on how to run clinical trials. This protects the rights, safety, privacy, and well-being of the people taking part.


LEO Pharma clinical trials always follow all relevant laws and guidelines. This includes the Declaration of Helsinki, an international agreement for ethical standards for medical research. Clinical trials will only take place after approval by the national regulatory authorities and research ethics committees.
