What are clinical trials?

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. These trials are used by researchers and medical professionals to evaluate the results of introducing participants to a certain medical, behavioral, or surgical intervention. They generally have four phases.


Focus on Safety

Phase 2

Check Effectiveness

Phase 3

Effectiveness across populations

Phase 4

Long-term efficacy & safety

Clinical trials have two main goals:

  • Safety
  • Effectiveness

Researchers spend years working with different groups of people and the treatment making sure that no stone is left unturned. An administration that handles approval of medications and therapies is operating alongside the trial through the entire process.
