about clinical trials
What is a clinical trial?
'Clinical trial' is the name given to any study involving the testing of a drug, device or other intervention in humans. In the first case, the drug may be new, and never before tested in humans, or it may be an existing drug/device being tested in a novel therapeutic application.
In drug/device development, clinical trials follow 'preclinical' trials that are conducted in the laboratory or in appropriate animal models of human disease. Results from preclinical trials are collected to establish that a new compound is likely to be safe for testing in humans.
Clinical trials are conducted under strict regulations and protocols determined by a governing body such as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia.
