About Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are scientific studies that involve people. Most clinical trials test how effective a new potential drug, medical device, or medical technique is at improving signs or symptoms of a particular condition OR prolonging the life of a patient with the condition. Clinical trials involve a strong collaboration between researchers, drug-makers/pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, patients, and doctors.
