English to Bengali: A short excerpt from a clinical trial
General field: Medical
Detailed field: Medical: Pharmaceuticals
Source text - English
To accurately determine whether or not you and those you live with have influenza, we will need to collect secretions from your nose via a nasal ‘swab.’ To do this, a trial doctor will insert a small, soft-tipped swab into your nostrils, and twirl it around a few times. Before potential participants (which includes both the potential participant and household contacts) start any trial-related activities, they will need to read and sign an informed consent form to show that they understand what the trial involves and agree to take part. Placebos are often used in clinical research trials to help researchers determine how effective the investigational drug is. Without a placebo, it’s very difficult to determine whether any changes during the trial are due to the investigational drug or some other factor.

আপনার এবং আপনার সাথে যারা থাকেন তাদের ইনফ্লুয়েঞ্জা আছে কি না তা সঠিকভাবে নির্ধারন করতে, আপনার নাক থেকে আমাদের ক্ষরণ সংগ্রহ করতে হবে নেজাল ‘সোয়াব’ এর মাধ্যমে|
এটি করার জন্য, পরীক্ষণের এক চিকিত্সক একটি ছোট, নরম টিপের সোয়াব ঢোকাবে আপনার নাকের ফুটোতে, এবং সেটিকে কয়েকবার ঘোরাবে। সম্ভাব্য অংশগ্রহনকারীদের (যাতে সম্ভাব্য অংশগ্রহনকারী এবং পরিবারের পরিচিতি, উভয়ই শামিল) কোন ট্রায়াল সম্পর্কিত ক্রিয়াকলাপ শুরু করার আগে, একটি অবগত সম্মতির ফর্ম পড়তে এবং সই করতে হবে এটি দেখাতে যে তারা বুঝতে পেরেছেন এই পরীক্ষণে কি জড়িত এবং তাতে অংশগ্রহন করতে তারা রাজি। চিকিতসামুলক গবেষণামূলক পরিক্ষায় প্রায়ই প্ল্যাসেবো ব্যবহার করা হয় গবেষকদের নির্ধারণ করতে সাহায্য করতে যে তদন্তমুলক ওষুধটি কতটা কার্যকর। প্ল্যাসেবো ছাড়া, এটি নির্ধারণ করা খুব কঠিন যে পরীক্ষণের সময়ে ঘটা কোন পরিবর্তনের কারণ কি তদন্তমুলক ওষুধ না অন্য কিছু।
