Importance of Clinical Trials
in Drug Development
The Pharma Clinical Trials are
conducted to test medical interventions, including drugs,
cells and other biological products, surgical procedures, radiological procedures, devices,
behavioral treatments and preventive care. Clinical trials are conducted on the people who
volunteer to participate in the clinical trials.
As the developers design the
clinical study, they will consider what they want to accomplish
for each clinical research phase and begin the Investigational New Drug Process, a process
they must go through before clinical research begins. The ultimate goal of clinical trials
in drug development is to bring a new compound with a proven therapeutic effect to the
All of the phases in clinical trials are governed by strict protocols. They are overseen by
many regulatory bodies, from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to small Independent
Review Boards (IRBs). IRBs are independent medical experts, ethicists, and laypeople.
Researchers report periodically to the IRB, outlining contact with patients, the tests
conducted, the results recorded, and even the side effects reported. IRBs are accredited by
the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP).
