Clinical trial phases
There are always three, and sometimes four, phases in clinical trials. After the successful completion of each phase a gradually increased number of partcipants are involved in the next stage.
Become a clinical research volunteer
Volunteers play a vital role in helping us to assess the effectiveness of a new medicine. Before getting their consent to take part we always tell them all they need to know about the trial.
