What are clinical trials?

The influence of a medical treatment on the course of a disease under a controlled environment is being investigated in clinical trials. One of the most common forms is the investigation of clinical and pharmacological effects of drugs and their possible side effects. Depending on the status of development of new drugs these trials are separated into so called clinical phases. This classification was set up according the „Code of Federal Regulations“ of the American Food and Drug Authorization (FDA).

 

The legal requirements for implementing clinical trials on humans have been exactly set up with the Medicines Law and have to be followed strictly. These regulations should ensure a comprehensive patient safety.
