Clinical Trials

Clinical Trials Categories

Clinical trials - also known as clinical studies or research protocols - are conducted to test whether a new drug, new prevention strategy, or new screening test is safe and effective in people. Participation is always voluntary. Baylor College of Medicine investigators conduct hundreds of studies, ranging from small, short-term studies to large trials with thousands of patients across many institutions.
