Patients with Urinary Incontinence, who have Multiple Sclerosis or Spinal Cord Injury

What are clinical trials?
Clinical trials are research studies to determine whether investigational drugs or treatments are safe and effective for humans. All new investigational medications and devices must undergo several clinical trials, often involving thousands of people.
Can I quit a trial?
You can quit a clinical trial at any time and you do not have to give a reason. There is no charge or penalty for quitting.
Why participate in a clinical trial?
You will have access to new investigational treatments that would be available to the general public only upon approval. You will also receive study-related medical care and attention from clinical trial staff at research facilities. Clinical trials offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future.
What are the benefits and risks of clinical trials?
You may or may not receive direct clinical benefit from this study but your participation will provide important information to help researchers learn more about the condition and possibly develop better treatments for future patients.
