In order for some post-polio syndrome research to be conducted, volunteers are needed. Patients who join research studies have the first chance to benefit from treatments that have shown promise in earlier research. People who volunteer will also make an important contribution to medical science by helping doctors learn more about post-polio syndrome. Although post-polio syndrome research trials may pose some risks, researchers take very careful steps to protect their patients.
