ABOUT CLINICAL TRIALS

Clinical trials are the key to extend our knowledge and improve current treatments and care both now and in the future. A clinical trial is a rigorously controlled research study of a new drug, new device or new technique to assess if it is safe and effective for use in humans. All trials must be conducted in accordance with the stringent regulatory requirement in Australia. The National Health and Medical Research Council of Australia provides more information about clinical trials. You can read more by clicking on the following links:
