What is a clinical trial?
Although there are many definitions of clinical trials, they are generally considered to be biomedical or health-related research studies in human beings that follow a pre-defined protocol. A clinical trial is a research program conducted in patients to evaluate a new medical treatment, drug or device. The purpose of clinical trials is to find new and improved methods of treating different diseases.
What happens during a clinical trial?
The clinical trial process depends on the kind of trial being conducted. The clinical trial team includes doctors and nurses as well as social workers and other health care professionals. They check the health of the participant at the begining of the trial, give specific instructions for participating in the trial, monitor the participant during the trial, and sometimes stay in touch after the trial is completed.
Some clinical trials involve more tests and doctor visits than the participant would normally have for an illness or condition. For all types of trials, the participant works with a research team. Clinical trial participation runs smoothly when the protocol is careflly followed and there is frequent contact with the research staff
Clinicla trials that are well designed and well executed are one approach for elegible participants to:
- Play an active role in their own health care
- Obtain study-related medical care at research facilities during the trial
- Help others by contributing to medical research
There are risks to clinical trials, including, but not limited to:
- There may be unpleasant, serious or even life-threatening side effects to experimental treatment
- The experimental treatment may not be effective for you
- The protocol may require more time and attention than would a non-protocol treatment, including trips to the study site, more treatments, hospital stays or complex dosage requirements
