The Importance Of Clinical Trials

Press Release: August 14, 2020

The world is constantly changing and shifting in its development of medication and cures for different kinds of illnesses and disorders. The need for human clinical trials has never been more in demand, as the industry is on the constant lookout for experts in clinical research methodology as without professionals who take charge of the roles of clinical testing and figuring out new, effective medication on trial basis it would be extremely difficult to create a cure that has the ability to be effective without being harmful. For this to be achievable we need to understand the importance of a clinical trial, and why without it the field of medicine and pharmacology would be very different in today's times. With all this information, you may be wondering what exactly takes place in a clinical trial and what does it mean.

 

Clinical Trials- 

This is when medication or new drugs are being tested for public use, during an ongoing clinical research study. It is an experimental technique created to get a solution to a detailed investigation which delves into the treatment of disease and illness that currently have no perfect cure. This is also done to ensure the safety of the medication when it's released for general use as it involves human lives and is a very meticulous, detail-oriented manner of attaining results that will be safe and fully functional. Clinical trials take place in 4 distinct phases

 

  • Phase 1- this is the initial testing phase, where the clinical trial is tested on a significantly small group of people as it is the first stage of testing and the Clinical Researchers haven't seen the effects of the drug in work. This phase is crucial as its when they determine whether the drug can be tested on a larger group, based on its effects and what the right dose of medicine is necessary to be genuinely helpful.
  • Phase 2- this phase is an intermediary one, where they shift from the small group to a slightly larger one as a method of having knowledge about the general majority rather than just a specific group. This is a vital stage when it comes to figuring out the more minor effects of the drug that may have gone previously unnoticed due to the small number of people being tested.
  • Phase 3- this is the stage right before gaining approval for large scale mass production, as the medication will now be distributed to a much larger population, of people from different geographical areas as a way of getting insights into the effect of the medicine on a diverse group of people. Once the medication is found to be effective and non-threatening to people from varied backgrounds.
  • Phase 4- this is the phase that occurs when the researchers have government authorisation to distribute the drug worldwide and observe the effects of the medication, which will be recorded for future reference and production of the drug. This phase takes a long amount of time to reach and not all clinical trials will reach this phase, but the ones that do will create a wonderfully positive impact on the lives of the people. 

 

Now that we've understood what a clinical trial entails, and it's different phases it's also important to note that there are two main kinds of trials that are used to reach a conclusion. They are the interventional and observational trial methods, interventional concentrating on getting more information about a specific intervention or cure and participants of this trial are part of different treatment groups for an easy comparison of results. Observational studies focus on situational differences and their impact on people, where they observe participants but do not directly involve themselves in the process to get the natural, unconditioned results which don't involve treatment groups.

 

From all of this I think we know exactly why clinical trials are important, because they lead to literal life changing cures that could save or make the lives of people suffering from disease better, it gives hope for a way of life that is of a higher quality than the one we lived previously and creates an impact that could never be measured by any scale.  If clinical trials and clinical research sparks interest and motivation to learn and grow as an individual, there's always the idea pursuing a course that helps you achieve these goals, as the industry is one of the most highly paid, strongly in demand and constantly looking for new talented Researchers.
