    I really like making extra money on the web. instead of making nothing .I have 3 boys all day and when we get board we look for clinical trials even for kid.When it’s raining or cold we all sit by the computer and look for trials so we can, make extra vacation money. I love the fact that there are trials for kids. Very few but they are there.

    I’ve been looking on http://www.clinicaltrials.gov for a while but haven’t done one yet because I haven’t figured out how to tell if you get paid. Is there a way to tell on their website if you get paid or do you have to contact each study directly.

      Most studies on clinicaltrials.gov will NOT list compensation. What I have done is emailed the contact person for each trial I was remotely interested in. If I get a response, I ask for the consent forms. They will always list compensation (if there is any associated) and normally state how you will receive payment within the consent documents.
      I use the advanced search and under “condition” I use HV OR Healthy Volunteer OR Healthy AND Female.

      go to http://www.clinicaltrials.gov and put ‘georgia’ into the search block – all the trials with sites in Georgia will be listed.

    I work in the clinical research study industry, and have for more than five years. Nearly every study requires you to pass a drug screen. It is written into the protocol. Occasionally, they do not have that requirement, and sometimes, the drug screen isn’t looking for THC, but the majority of the time, you have to pass a drug screen to participate in any clinical research trial, at least pharmaceutical trials. Every study is different, and has different inclusion and exclusion criteria, but drug screens are standard in this industry.

      Hi
      I am thinking of signing up for a study through Covance. Just wanted to know hoe smoking (tobacco) is tested. I have read after 3 weeks all nicotine is removed from the bofy. Some courses I have been looking at specify non smokers for 3 months. Question is, how and what would they do to determine if I had stopped smoking a month a go or 3 months ago. Surely the data would be the same?
      Thanks.

    Hi Kara, Studies typically list what they pay out. If not, you can always find out during your interview/qualifier call.

    Hi,
    This is only for your country, do you maybe know about ANY clinical trials worlwide or how to find a sponsor for a clinical study project if someone have an idea? Do you maybe know about esthetic surgery clinical trials? Physical therapy and bodybuildying issues, circulatory system, vein treatmants, hormonal therapy? I give my body for anything that can work out on me and on others so we all can be truly happy. There is cheap way and solution for anything, they just need to collect the brains. Nobary knows everything but, somebary knows something.

    Hello Jacquie, Thank you very much for offering to use my name as your referral! Halina is my real name, by the way. I will let you know if Covance keeps to its word. Thank you again!

    Halina, I read your article yesterday and looked up the Covance website. I noticed that Covance pays a referral fee of $200 for each referral. I’m going back to the website today to sign up as a volunteer and will list your name as a referral. Just wasn’t sure if you were using a pen name or more information will be necessary. If I’m selected it hope the referral works. Thanks for your writing and posting.

    How do you know what they pay? I’ve never seen it listed? Do you ask when you call about it?

    Hi Dwayne,
    Yes, you do pay taxes on those earnings, unless you make under $600. So that needs to be taken into consideration too.

    Yes it does, Thanks!!! I had learned from my research that they pay with checks but didn’t know it took sometime to get the check, thought for sure they’d write it out then & there, but I guess it takes time like everything else. lol Wish me luck!

    Robert, the bigger and more involved studies usually pay out in the thousands of dollars. Smaller trials, as you noted, may just not be worth your time, especially if you have to be driving out several times. Studies don’t usually pay out on the spot, though, and in some cases I’ve had to wait several weeks for my check to arrive. Although, the allergy study I did at UW paid me out about $80 every time I showed up- and I was driving maybe 5 miles. Hope this helps!

    Bummer, Brian. It just may be one of the criteria that participants don’t have too many other substances in their systems. Especially THC, which has been found to treat many ailments (e.g., cancer pain) and alleviate several health conditions.

    FYI, NOCCR does a full panel drug screen. I tested positive for THC and failed the screening. Bummer.

    Also, are the smaller payout studies really worth the long drives to doc visits because I am not seeing a big incentive to drive if the studies offer $300 over different doc visits. I’m trying to determine if they add up or are just a waste? Please let me know. Thanks.

    Have been researching clinical trials for over a month now & find a handful disqualify for smoking Cigarettes-marijuana, but the length between the last time you smoked anything varies in between studies. My question is how long does it typically take to start making decent money from studies?

    Wow, Marcus, that’s a lot of money! But I know what you mean about the marks- at Covance, I saw several volunteers with actual “railroad tracks” on their arms. Employers might give you funny looks when you show up with arm marks.

    I have personally done 107 clinical trials over 22 yrs and have made over $200,000 with hardly any side effects.

    I do have marks from catheters and needles after all these years but I find other than that no problems whatsoever.

    I find it is a great way to supplement income as well as helping forward research that may one day even help me in the end.

    Hi Brian, Thanks for commenting. I’ve never heard of drug/alcohol use disqualifying a person from doing a study. However, I’m wondering if the screen is being done here to remove individuals who might have suppressed immune systems due to drugs/alcohol. Not that I’d consider marijuana to compromise an immune system. But that might be reason. Overall, I wouldn’t worry about marijuana; I think they’re looking for heavier stuff. Good luck!

    I have signed up for a clinical trial with noccr knoxville. They informed me that I would have to pass a drug and alcohol screen. I have smoked marijuana infrequently recently, up until yesterday. My appointment is friday. Would that disqualify me? It is for an anti malarial drug.

    And after ALL this time, I thought you had just recently finished undergrad school at Penn State. Grad work at NIH?? I’m impressed, Steve. Outstanding academic credentials!! Just lends still more credence (not that it’s needed…) to your website.

    These trials are a great way to make extra money. I did a couple in Knoxville thru NOCCR, one for 3 weeks and rec’d $3400. The nurses and volunteers were all great and would do it again.
