Why signing an informed consent form (ICF) is mandatory

The informed consent form will tell you about the study to help you decide whether to participate. A sufficient amount of time will be provided for you to review this document and discuss it with the recruitment and medical teams. Ask the study doctor (also named Investigator) or study staff as many questions as needed to understand and decide if you want to participate. This process is known as informed consent.

You can discuss the informed consent form with your doctor or anyone else to better understand your options. Your participation is voluntary, and you must not sign and date this form unless the study doctor or staff has answered your questions and you decide to be part of this study.
