Are there any risks?

How we minimise risk in our clinical trials

You can be certain we do everything we possibly can to ensure the safety of our volunteers. We have undertaken extensive research to make sure we only select people who are at minimal risk of being affected by the medication or virus they will receive.

Even then our volunteers have to pass through several screening processes before being accepted for a trial

No medical trial can be said to be completely free of risk. However, because of the strict processes and screenings we have in place, we have now had over 3,000 volunteers take part in our studies safely and successfully.


  • Before you agree to stay at FluCamp, we will explain the whole study to you and any potential risks. We answer any questions/concerns you may have. You are free to withdraw from any study at any point if you change your mind.
  • We operate a strict health screening process; only those who are 100% suitable can take part.  Even if there are even minor concerns, volunteers may be excluded for their own health and safety.
  • Highly trained clinical teams work in our two screening units and our quarantine unit. Doctors are on call 24/7, even when you have gone home, to provide support and assistance if in the unlikely event that you feel unwell.
