This site and CTC does not provide medical advice nor suggest participation in clinical trials as an alternative to medical advice or treatment. Any participation in a medical trial or other medical research should be undertaken only in consultation with your own medical advisors.

CTC relies on the information provided by clinical trial providers and participants and makes no representations nor provides any warranties as to the accuracy of the information supplied. In particular CTC does not warrant that any clinical trial has satisfied regulatory approval.

As a clinical trial participant you should always seek the advice of your own professional medical advisors prior to commencing any form of participation in such trials. Reliance on any information provided through http://www.ctc.asn.au and participation in any medical trial to which you are referred by CTC is entirely at your own risk.
