What is a Clinical Trial?

Clinical trials often involve patients with specific health conditions who then benefit from receiving otherwise unavailable treatments, free medical care and compensation for participation.

In planning a clinical trial, the sponsor or investigator first identifies the medication or device to be tested. In medical jargon, effectiveness is how well a treatment works in practice and efficacy is how well it works in a clinical trial. To get more information please click here.

In coordination with a panel of expert investigators (usually physicians well known for their publications and clinical experience), the sponsor decides what to compare the new agent with (one or more existing treatments or a placebo), and what kind of patients might benefit from the medication or device. If the sponsor cannot obtain enough patients with this specific disease or condition at one location, then investigators at other locations who can obtain the same kind of patients to receive the treatment would be recruited into the study.

During the clinical trial, the investigators: recruit patients with the predetermined characteristics, administer the treatment(s), and collect data on the patients’ health for a defined time period. These patients are volunteers and may be compensated for participating in clinical trials. These data include measurements like vital signs, concentration of the study drug in the blood, and whether the patient’s health improves or not. The researchers send the data to the trial sponsor, who then analyzes the pooled data using statistical tests.

While most clinical trials compare two medications or devices, some trials compare three or four medications, doses of medications, or devices against each other.
