Clinical trials are research studies involving people. They test various aspects of new drugs, treatment regiments, and/or lifestyle changes.
There are two main types of clinical trials: interventional or observational. Interventional trials test a particular intervention such as new drugs or treatment regimens; whereas, observational studies aim to find out what happens to people in different situations.
Clinical trials are vital as they rigorously test new treatments to see if they are safe and effective before it becomes widely available.
