If you participate in one of our clinical trials

We run many different trials. The general procedure for processing data is as follows:
We process your data on the basis of your patient consent to the clinical trial and in accordance with the requirements of the Arzneimittelgesetz (AMG, German Medicines Act). You are entitled to withdraw this consent at any time without stating reason. Should you withdraw your consent, no further data will be recorded but the data recorded to date will be retained in so far as this is necessary to meet the requirements of the AMG.
The data will be processed for the purpose of conducting a clinical trial to study the effectiveness and safety of the medicines used. The data may possibly also be used for registration/approving or extension of registration of the drugs.
Your medical data is  transmitted in pseudonymised form (using only a patient number, but no name) to GBG Forschungs GmbH in Neu-Isenburg by your physician. GBG has no access to your name and address data. Only the study site treating you knows your name.
These medical data are retained after the end or discontinuation of the trial in accordance with statutory provisions relating to clinical trials (currently at least ten years). In the event of scientific publication, only anonymised data will be published.
If you have any questions regarding your stored data, please first contact the study site treating you. The site may forward your enquiry to GBG.
For further information, in particular about the institutions involved, please see the patient information document and the declaration of consent relating to your trial.
