Happy Monday everyone! We're going to be starting a weekly series where we provide answers to important questions regarding clinical trial participation. This week's question is: What is a Clinical Trial?
A Clinical Trial is a research study conducted with human volunteers in order to answer specific health questions. These trials are the fastest and safest way to find new treatments and improve health. Trials that involve the use of new treatments are called interventional trials. Whereas trials that observe humans in their natural settings are called observational trials.
