How does it work?

A possible new drug is being investigated that can be used to treat certain bacterial infections. This specific type of bacteria is difficult to combat with many of the existing medicines (antibiotics). These bacteria are involved in blood poisoning, bacterial pneumonia, and complex urinary tract infections, among others. The new drug may help the body recognize and clear up these bacterial infections. For participating at this trial you'll receive a compensation of  €1.450,- gross.

The trial in a nutshell:

  • Intake by telephone and a medical screening
  • A stay at our clinic from 5 days / 4 nights. Your stay can be prolonged by an additional day.
  • you will receive your compensation within approximately 2 months after the start of the trial.

“Vanaf binnenkomst voelde ik me welkom en gedurende het verblijf bleef ik het gevoel houden dat ik goed in de gaten gehouden werd. Ik vond het heerlijk om een paar dagen alle tijd te hebben in de wetenschap dat ik er een goed doel mee dien.”

"You basically only need to bring some clean clothes and toiletries. Everything else is here. As many clean towels as you need, your bed made, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Some participants bring a PlayStation or their own board games, but we have plenty of those here anyway!"

What can I expect?

Do you wonder what a day in our clinic looks like? You are not the only one! When you participate in clinical trials (at QPS or elsewhere) for the first time, there is a lot to discover. What do you do with your time, what are the other participants like, how friendly are the doctors and nursing staff? But also: what is expected of you? 

A day in a clinic differs per clinical trial, but all studies have a number of elements in common. Below, we will outline a sample situation and take you through a stay with us in the clinic.
