About Pagoda Xplained
Starting a clinical trial can be daunting – doctors use language that everyday people may not understand, making them feel confused and anxious.
That's why Medicine X has created Pagoda Xplained. Pagoda Xplained is here to help everyone understand what's involved in a trial so they can feel informed and empowered about their health.
If you ever have any questions don't be shy to ask your study doctor - they're there to help you!
The Medicine X team is made up of doctors, artists, and creative writers that all work to make sure the information is easy to understand both in content and visuals.
