Clinical trials study potential new treatments in healthy volunteers or people with a specific illness or condition. They are an indispensable tool to determine the safety and efficacy of new drug candidates before they can be used to treat illness.
An investigational medicine is one that has not yet been approved for use. Access for patients in need can be granted based on certain criteria.
