What is a clinical trial and why is it important?

Clinical trials have long been a necessity in the fight against diseases. Clinical trials are important for discovering new treatments for diseases and preventing new ways of diagnosing and preventing illnesses.

Researchers use clinical studies to understand what does and doesn’t work in humans that cannot be learned in the laboratory or with animals. Clinical trials are the backbone of therapeutic advances because without them medical research would be nothing more than a study on paper.

What is a clinical test?

Clinical tests are as old as early civilizations: the first written standards were set by Ibn Sina (known as Avicenna) around the year 1000. Today, clinical trials are regulated according to international standards and constantly evolve to advance medical knowledge and patient care. These tests aim to guarantee maximum safety for all. In the United States, clinical trials must comply with strict regulations defined by the Public Health Code.

The Clinical Studies At Biotrial

Clinical studies are the very first step in the process of developing future treatments. The studies carried out by our research center, with the help of healthy volunteers, are usually Phase 1 studies. Specifically, our clinical studies aim to bring answers to the following:

Phase 1 clinical trials are designed to study the tolerance of the drug. The drug is administered gradually to small successive groups of participants. Some volunteers will receive a single dose of the product while others may receive multiple doses. But it is only if no adverse event occurs in a first cohort that the clinical trial can move on to the next cohort of healthy volunteers.

When a Phase I study is completed, the clinical trial moves over to phase 2 where the new treatment is tested on patients. The drug will continue its journey until it finally becomes available to healthcare professionals.

When you participate in clinical trials, you are making a difference!

The importance of clinical trials cannot be stressed enough, not only from the perspective of medical researchers but for everyone around the world. Clinical trials pave way for medical discoveries. We all are beneficiaries of people who have tested drugs for us in the past and owe to do the same for future generations.
