What Are Clinical Trials?

Clinical trials are research studies that explore whether a medical strategy, treatment, or device is safe and effective for humans. These studies also may show which medical approaches work best for certain conditions.

Why Are Clinical Trials Important?

Clinical trials are a key research tool for advancing medical knowledge and patient care. Clinical research is done only if doctors don’t know whether a new approach works well in people and is safe and which treatments or strategies work best for certain illnesses or groups of people. ​Learn More at the NIH Website
