Clinical trials are research studies involving human volunteers to see how safe and effective a potential medication is in preventing, treating, or curing a particular disease or condition. Such trials are essential research tools for advancing medical knowledge and patient care.
Just about every medication, medical device, or surgical procedure has undergone rigorous clinical studies before being approved for use.
There are substantial benefits to volunteering to be in a clinical trial.
Clinical trials are characterized by Phases, with each phase dictating the goals of the study and the type of subjects or patients that will participate.
