Double blind trials have a impartial set of assessors who are there to monitor the good and bad effects of any test drug but how do we make it more speedy…..simple its the Sixth Amendment.
Every time you want to change anything in the trial you need to make an amendment that goes through ethical review.
The Sixth Amendment to our trial indeed provides more speed.
So now there is less commitment needed in terms of time spent at the hospital making it easier to do the study

Whilst you can use a wheel chair, you will also need to be able to walk 10m as part of the study and get on the bed for assessment.
This was selected for academic and logistical reasons,
Therefore to be eligible, you will need to be drug-free or be willing to come off your drug to do the trial. I am led to believe that this can be a revelation, as one may appreciate how sedative current medications can be and you will get a tailored symptom management plan once the study is complete.
