You can be rest assured that the scientists, chemists and medical practitioners that are developing the drug are confident that it is safe for you to take. However they need to see if it can be used in the wider world or if it is ineffective. There may be some side effects that they can contract but they need a live human being to do it. It’s not hard. You take the drug (or the placebo, you won’t be told for obvious reasons) and are monitored to see what happens. You’re in safe hands at all points.
