A clinical study is the process through which new drugs and medical techniques are studied to develop and/or improve the treatment of diseases. They are carefully monitored and documented and are overseen by an independent ethics committee.
Clinical trials are conducted in phases. Each phase describes the information that is collected: safety, efficacy, dose, etc.
Phase 0: preclinical phase, research is conducted in a laboratory.
Phase I: used to demonstrate that a new treatment is safe for a group of people (healthy volunteers) and establish the best dose and administration method for future investigation of the drug.
Phase II: phase II clinical studies provide more information on the dose of the new treatment and the safety variables. They are conducted with volunteers who suffer from the disease.
Phase III: used to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the new treatment in a large group of people. If the results are positive, the administrative process for authorisation of the drug can begin.
Clinical trials are also conducted to discover more about a new indication or aspect of a marketed drug (Phase IV).
Participation in a clinical study is always completely voluntary. If, during follow-up of the study, a patient decides that they do not want to continue, they can stop at any time without having to give an explanation and without this decision affecting the quality of health care they receive. The doctor may also decide to suspend a patient’s participation in a clinical trial if they consider that another treatment would be better.
Volunteers who participate in clinical studies play a fundamental role in the production of safer and more effective medicines and treatments. Without volunteers, pharmaceutical laboratories and research centres would need much more time to complete the development and approval stages for new treatments that may be vital for many people.
