Understanding Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that involve the participation of human volunteers. A clinical trial aims to test the safety and effectiveness of new ways to diagnose, prevent and treat a medical problem, such as disease, illness, or injury.

Being part of a clinical trial can allow patients to receive new or additional treatment. While research may not always directly benefit the participant, clinical trials can help scientists and doctors learn and understand better ways to help treat their patients and patients in the future.
