Clinical trials in pharmacology

Last reviewed dd mmm yyyy. Last edited dd mmm yyyy

Clinical trials in pharmacology are good at looking for benefits - almost by definition since this is what is being looked for, but less good at looking for risks and limits.

The validity of trials should be assessed by looking at:

  • aims
  • basic design
  • methods of assessment
  • the numbers of people involved
