Clinical Research & Clinical Trials of cancer


Clinical trials are a type of medical study in which participants follow a pre-determined protocol to address a specific patient care question. Clinical trials are used to examine cancer medicines, cardiovascular disease treatments, new drug safety profile, and a variety of other ailments. A clinical trial is a research study that analyses reactions to various interventions in real-world settings in order to determine the efficacy of drugs or other health treatments. Clinical trials are voluntary and subject to strict ethical guidelines. Clinical trials are the only means to adequately analyse the effects of a clinical intervention and are an important way to enhance cancer treatment. If a clinical trial demonstrates that a test or treatment is more successful than currently available options, it could become the new standard of care for patients in the future.
