Clinical trials are the heart of all medical advances. They are intended to answer scientific questions and find better ways to treat or prevent diseases. They also provide important information on the cost-effectiveness of a treatment and how a treatment improves quality of life.
Clinical trials are conducted in phases. Each phase is designed to answer certain questions, while taking steps necessary to safeguard the subject taking part. Every new treatment is necessarily tested before regulatory authorities or institutional review board/ Independent Ethics Committee (IRB/IEC) consider it safe and effective. Trials are also conducted according to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) guidelines that regulators require in order to protect subject safety.
