Place

SAN DIEGO, June 9 /PRNewswire/ -- ASPIRE IRB (http://www.aspire-irb.com), an Independent Review Board (IRB), is responsible for overseeing research and protecting the rights and welfare of people participating in clinical trials. ASPIRE IRB partners with drug manufacturers and research companies to get the best results from clinical drug trials and protect the rights and welfare of participants. "Making sure research is being implemented correctly is critical to the success of the study. Each study is unique. For instance people with Schizophrenia can tolerate a higher dose of particular drugs than people without the disorder. Races, because of genetics, react differently as well," explains Alycia Huston, COO of ASPIRE IRB.

The FDA and HHS regulations empower Independent Review Boards to approve or disapprove research and require modifications. They are made up of physicians, scientists, nonscientists, community members and associates affiliated with the IRB. A clinical trial CANNOT take place without an Independent Review Board.

Hundreds of thousands of people participate in clinical trials with the hope of finding relief and or to help others. Research is essential to finding cures and treatments for conditions and diseases. Being a member of a clinical trial is a big decision. It is essential for people to know their rights and understand how clinical trials work. They follow a defined protocol or study plan. It is designed to protect the health of participants and answer specific research questions.

Participating in clinical trials provides hope, can save lives and help others.

"Clinical trials for Cancer were instrumental in extending my life," states Mercie Madrid. Another participant, Mike Means, says, "I participated in a clinical trial for Psoriasis and my condition improved dramatically."

ASPIRE IRB's 10 Ways to Protect Participants' Rights and Maximize Results for Clinical Research
1) Participants can decide not to participate in the research study with

NO penalty or loss of benefits any time.

2) Participants can ask any questions that occur before, during or after

the study.

3) Be Informed. Get a copy of the consent form, the main source of

information for the study.

trials.

7) Be prompt to all scheduled appointments.

immediately.
