How does it work?

This clinical trial will research a possible new drug developed for the treatment of liver fibrosis and lung cancer. Liver fibrosis is scar tissue in the liver from prolonged inflammation. The scar tissue can make the liver work less well and with severe fibrosis the liver can shrivel, this is also called cirrhosis. The drug is expected to reduce the inflammation and to counteract the fibrosis.

Next the drug binds to substances in the body involved in cell division, cell dissolution and the formation of blood vessels. The processes play an important role in the formation and growth of tumors. By taking this drug, the making of tumors could be inhibited.

For participating at this trial you'll receive a compensation of €4.092,- gross.

The trial in a nutshell:

  • Intake by telephone and a medical screening
  • The trial consist of three clinic periods in which you will stay at the QPS clinic. Each clinical period consist of 6 days.
  • Subsequently, you will return to the clinic once after the last period for a final check-up.

"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!"
