A clinical trial is a research study conducted to investigate new treatments such as a new drug compound in human volunteers or research participants. Each clinical trial is designed to learn about a potential treatment and its effect on humans. Before a new treatment is tried in human, extensive laboratory testing are done to identify promising compounds and toxicological (safety) tests conducted to determine possible risks. The treatment with the most promising results is then moved into clinical trials. Research in humans takes a cautious and progress in a sequential or phase approach.
