    I thought the exact same thing.

    How exactly is your fee determined?

    That's one thing I'm finding out tomorrow.

    From what I gather, you get minimum ?ú1750, the rest is dependant on time spent there. Seeing as they're suggesting I'd be there between 10-14 days.

    So how did this pan out?

    I remember the Parexcel Elephant Man issues a few years back, that looked no fun but then there are ALOT more safe human testings you can be involved in.

    I imagine some on here have recreationally put stuff in their bodies with no idea where it was coming from.

    I think this depends on a few things.

    - Test by universities would be much safer than those by pharmaceutical or cosmetic companies, because they are subject to much tighter regulation

    - There's a difference between basic and applied research. Basic research is more risky because it's looking at more unknowns

    - Look at the animal testing that has been done first. If it's gone through zebra fish and primates, it's likely to be ok

    - If you have a serious condition, definitely look at targeted clinical trials looking to remedy it. I have a friend currently involved in trials looking to delay MS progression - that type of stuff is good. But being healthy and becoming a guiney pig for small financial gain - yeah, well, Darwinism.

    ....A horrific anal experiment gone wrong, which he suffered at the hands of the evil pharmaceutical company.

    Well, that’s where he claims it happened anyway....

    Because I was involved with a Norman lamb (commons science and technology committee) inquiry into research governance

    Mate of mine did Flucamp a few years ago.

    Spent 10 days dossing in the room they gave him, on the play station, reading etc - proper jolly away from the Mrs. Pretty sure he got the placebo so he didnt even feel unwell at all!

    Got paid £2k I think at the end.

    He thought it was great.

    I doubt Uni clinical trials are subject to "much tighter regulation" than pharma companies, but I don't want to get into a billion page discussion on it.

    I'd be quite happy to do it so long as they guaranteed I got the placebo. And full payment, of course.

    I think the answer lies in the fact he didn't reply back on his own thread

    Done a few trials....there are two companys one in Leeds and one in Nottingham I've heard of,good money for some trials....best ones are the longer ones,so you got to be away for a month or so plus the need to go back up a couple of times for the day to give blood,all costs are covered. You got to give yourself a three month break between each trial plus your BMI needs to low as well(between 28-32) . You could earn 8k,tax free if you got time on your hands,i got one for 5 days and a few blood tests got 1k for it. Would do more if i had the time...getting paid to watch netflix and prime all day lol...
