Terms of Use

These Terms of Use (“Terms”) are for www.theautismstudy.com (the "Study Website"), a website associated with a research study entitled : A Three-arm, Parallel Group, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled Study of the Efficacy, Safety, and Tolerability of AB-2004 in a 13 to 17 Year-old Autism Spectrum Disorder Population (the "Study").  The Study is a clinical trial to establish the potential benefits, safety and tolerability of AB-2004 in adolescent participants with irritability associated with autism spectrum disorder.   The Study Website Is maintained by Axial Therapeutics, Inc., ("Axial," "we," or "us"), the sponsor of the Study.  The purpose of the Study Website is to provide Information about the Study and to support the recruitment of participants for the Study.  You should read these Terms carefully.  By using the Study Website, you are agreeing to the Terms.   If you do not agree to the Terms, you should not use the Study Website.  You should also review the Study Website Privacy Policy carefully.

  

1. Purpose of the Website

The purpose of the Study Website is to provide general information and support recruitment for the Study.  If you think that you might be qualified for the Study and you would like to learn more about the Study and be considered for participation, the Study Website will provide information to help you follow up with a third party screening platform (“TrialWire”) or with Study sites directly.   To use the Study Website, you must be 18 years of age or older.

 

2. Clinical Trial Recruitment Process

Axial’s Study Website does not collect any personal information.  If you wish to submit information and to be considered for participation in the Study, you may follow the link to the TrialWire website and submit your information there, or you may contact a Study site directly.  If you meet certain criteria (or clinical trial requirements) you may be invited for further screening.  You will only be invited to participate in the trial if you meet all of the Study’s requirements for participation. 

3. Things to Consider before Participating in a Clinical Trial

Here are some important things to consider before submitting your personal information for consideration for the Study:

  • You should review the Study Website Privacy Policy [MAKE THIS A HYPERLINK] carefully before using the Study Website.

  • Clinical trials are voluntary – you do not have to participate in a clinical trial and even if you agree to participate, you can change your mind at any time, even after signing a consent form.

  • Submitting your information based on links or other contact information that you find on the Study Website does not guarantee your participation in the study.  Not everyone qualifies for every clinical trial.  If you submit your information for consideration for the Study, and even if you are selected for additional screening procedures, you may not ultimately qualify for the Study.

  • If you do qualify for the Study, and you are invited to participate, you should read all of the information provided to you regarding the Study and ask any questions that you have.  It can also be helpful to talk with health care providers, friends and family about clinical trial participation.
     

4. Amendments to these Terms.
 

These Terms may be amended by Axial from time to time so you should review them each time you visit the Study Website.
