WHAT IS A CLINICAL TRIAL?

A clinical trial is a research study that determines the safety and efficacy of a new treatment. In a clinical trial participants are assigned to receive specific interventions according to a research plan, or protocol, created by an investigator, who is often a physician. When a new product or approach is being studied, it is not known whether it will be helpful, harmful, or no different than available alternatives, so investigators determine the safety and efficacy of the intervention by measuring certain outcomes in the participants. Clinical trials can be sponsored, or funded, by pharmaceutical companies, academic medical centers, voluntary groups, and other organizations.1, 2
