What are clinical trials?
Clinical trials are research studies to determine whether investigational drugs or treatments are safe and effective for humans. All new investigational medications and devices must undergo several clinical trials, often involving thousands of people.

You will also receive study-related medical care and attention from clinical trial staff at research facilities.
