Clinical trials are research studies aimed to evaluate a medical, surgical, or behavioral intervention. They are the primary way that researchers find out if a new treatment is safe and effective. Often a clinical trial is used to learn if a new treatment is more effective and/or has less harmful side effects than the standard treatment.
