Has anyone done a drug trial?

I have been diagnosed with "mild symptoms due to moderate Crohns", which seems contradictory but makes me eligible to participate in a drug trial of an experimental drug TU-100 by Tsumura USA, Inc. It is described as "a modern herbal product that has been approved in Japan since 1986". The trial is being run out of UCSF (among other US locations) with a very small number of subjects.

Anyone heard of this? If so, thinking of doing it?

Or has anyone done a trial for a drug? If so, what experience did you have?
