What is a clinical trial?
A clinical trial is a type of research study that evaluates how well a drug or device can treat or manage a disease. Clinical trials evaluate how effective and safe drugs and devices are for people. The trial is designed to answer questions about possible new treatments or new ways of using current treatments.
Why are clinical trials important?
Clinical trials usually involve many patients. Patients may participate in a study for days or years –depending on how the study is designed.
