Clinical trials are experiments or observations done in clinical research, designed to answer specific questions about biomedical or behavioural interventions, including new treatments (vaccines, drugs, dietary choices, dietary supplements, and medical devices etc.) and known interventions that warrant further study and comparison. Clinical trials generate data on safety and efficacy. They are conducted only after they have received health authority/ethics committee approval in the country where approval of the therapy is sought.
