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.


The video below was created in partnership with Genetech to share details about what a clinical trial is and how they are conducted.
