Yes unless disclosed: Any study is required to provide you with full details on the level of confidentiality you will have. Typically, your identifying information remains confidential but general information about your diagnosis, what treatment you received, the progress made will be included in the study along with others for reporting purposes. Good question for the person conducting the study.
