Maintaining Scientific Integrity
So you’ve decided to participate in the Argyle Study? You should be proud! We thank you immensely for your time. Participating in a study like this is something that will benefit not only you, but millions of other people for decades to come. Since you are devoting your time to be a part of such an important study, we want to make sure we are all on the same page regarding one of the most crucial parts of clinical research: privacy.
We Will Protect Your Privacy.
With your whole-hearted, honest participation comes our confidentiality. The clinical team at your site, fully HIPAA compliant, will never share confidential information you provide in any identifying way. The results from your participation in this study will be used to evaluate our new hyperhidrosis treatment's effectiveness, though no data will ever be connected to your name. Your privacy and confidentiality are of utmost importance to us, and we never share your name or information provided on this website or at your site with third parties.
You Need to Protect Your Privacy, Too.
Participating in the Argyle Study is a commitment of 13 months. We understand this is a long time and know it will be tempting to talk about your progress or experiences along the way. Please understand that limiting your conversations about the study to your clinic visits is essential to our success with this study. Comparing results with other participants, gathering opinions from loved ones, or asking advice on online forums can skew data and potentially make your participation invalid. At the end of the day, talking with anyone about the Argyle Study outside of your clinical visits can seriously compromise data, results, and the hard work of many people. Scientific integrity is imperative for producing the most effective treatments and remedies for all of us.
If you have any questions about what can and cannot be shared, please don’t hesitate to ask the staff at your site.
