He added that even the patients are getting excited about being involved and taking some part in their health and the research of health for others.

“In the end, you want a clinical trial that’s done right, that will get valid results, that will be able to improve care,” Dr Gabbay said. “I think it’s a great thing for patients as well because they then get access in some ways to newer therapies.”
