Clinical trial studies help determine which medical approaches work best for certain illnesses or groups of people. They produce the best data available for healthcare decision making.
The purpose of clinical trials is research, so the studies follow strict scientific standards. These standards protect patients and help produce reliable study results.
Clinical trials are one of the final stages of a long and careful research process. The process often begins in a laboratory, where scientists first develop and test new ideas.
