Your initial contact will be by telephone with one of our staff. If you think you are interested in taking part we will send you written information about the study treatment and the tests that will be performed. You will be invited to the clinic for some screening tests to make sure it is safe for you to take part and to check that you are suitable. A doctor and study researcher will ask you questions about your health and any medicines you are taking and will explain the study to you.  You will be asked to sign an Informed Consent form before any tests take place to show that you understand what is involved. If you wish to continue and qualify for the study you will be asked to return to the clinic at specific times for treatment and tests. You might only be given medicine to take when you are at the clinic or you might be given medicine to take when you are at home. You might also be asked to record information about your health while you are away from the clinic. This is often done using electronic devices provided to you for the study.
