There is the financial incentive because you get paid for testing drugs and undergoing trials.

Get Paid To Test Drugs


The benefits when you get paid to test drugs is that you will be rewarded well and will be helping to develop new treatments and adapt existing science.


Drug Testing


The disadvantages are that some medicines and treatment have never been treated or tested on humans before. You may experience unpleasant or potentially dangerous side effects. However these are rare and there has usually been much testing of the treatment in the laboratories before being tested on live healthy humans. You will be in the care of trained professionals who will monitor your progress and health. Do ask questions and make sure you get a full explanation of what you are undergoing. Although you will have signed forms you should have the right to stop at any stage, though this may affect you payment as a medical trial volunteer.

Perhaps the most infamous phase one was that on 13 March 2006 for the German company TeGenero. It took place at an independent testing unit at Northwick Park Hospital in London. The code name was called TGN1412 and sadly the drug testers had a reaction within minutes of taking them. This lead to multiple organ failures and the trialists had to be rushed to intensive care. Such events are rare - over 90,000 people perform them each year and are considered safe.
