Clinical trials are research studies involving real patients to test if a new treatment or procedure is safe, effective and maybe better than established options. The goal is to learn which treatments work best for certain illnesses or groups of people.
Clinical trials follow strict scientific standards. These standards help protect patients and produce more reliable study results.
