What are clinical trials?
Clinical trials are clinical research studies conducted to investigate new treatments such as a new drug compound in human volunteers or research participants. Clinical trials can also look at other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses.
Such research takes a cautious and progress in a sequential or phase approach. Research is conducted into new medications or therapeutic goods but can also involve products that are already available on the market, for further improvement.
Clinical trials offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future.
