“Just go for it!”
In this case study video, you can hear from Suzanne, 34, from Berkshire who took part in one of our asthmatic trials. Suzanne works as a part-time care assistant and heard about FluCamp via our radio ads and social media. She got in touch with us to volunteer on a trial for an experimental drug treatment for asthmatics. She was initially concerned that her asthma may mean that the trials would be very harsh on her body, but she was supported by our doctors and medical staff, as well as her fellow Flu Campers.
Suzanne spent five days at FluCamp undertaking tests and getting her vitals checked as part of our trials. She talks about her time with us, how she felt during the clinical trials, as well as the fun she had with other volunteers!
We know that reading facts and figures doesn’t always alleviate concerns or questions. So, if you are considering taking part in a FluCamp trial but are concerned about the experience, or simply want to know how it feels from a real person, we have spoken to volunteers who are sharing their experiences of their time at FluCamp with you.
Our Everyday Hero volunteers work on a variety of clinical trials with us, to help research cures for the common cold and flu viruses. As well as this, they help us to research on treatments to reduce the severity of asthma attacks. Understanding how the process works can help you better prepare for and understand how our trials are run.
