It is generally not the case that participating in a clinical trial will result in a patient receiving worse care than they would receive outside of the trial. Clinical trials are designed to test the safety and effectiveness of new treatments, and participants are carefully monitored to ensure their safety and well-being. However, it’s important to understand that participating in a clinical trial carries some risks, as there is always the possibility that the treatment being tested may not be effective, or that it may cause side effects that are not yet known.
