What is a "Clinical Trial"? That's a question that often comes to mind when seeking possible treatment for a condition affecting you or your loved one. Basically, a clinical trial is an experiment in which the test subjects are human beings, not rats or cells in tissue culture. A clinical trial tests hypotheses, or the beliefs of scientists and clinicians that the particular treatment under investigation will be well tolerated and will benefit patients who are affected by a certain disease. Such treatments come in various forms. Some include a new drug developed specifically for a particular disorder; an "old" drug already in use for some conditions that is now being tested for a new indication; or a naturally occurring substance, such as a vitamin or cofactor, that may have added benefit when given in larger amounts than are normally consumed the diet or manufactured by the body.
