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.

Pagoda Xplained was created to help everyone understand what’s involved in a trial so they can feel informed and empowered about their health. Pagoda Xplained doesn’t replace the informed consent form, but we hope it clarifies some information for you!

If you ever have any questions don’t be shy to ask your study doctor - they’re there to help you!
