What is a clinical study?

Before a drug may be prescribed by a doctor, it must first be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). To obtain this approval, clinical studies must be carried out to establish the effectiveness and safety of the drug. It is essential that these studies are conducted in accordance with precisely defined rules and conditions.
