What are the different types of clinical trials?

Clinical research involves people. The team at Quality of Life Medical & Research perform both observational studies and clinical trials.

Observational studies look at people in normal settings and compare changes over time. The team collects data through medical exams, tests, and questionnaires.

Clinical trials are conducted primarily onsite. They evaluate a medical intervention to find out if a new drug, diet, or medical device is safe and effective. The team may also test ways to find out if a disease can be detected earlier or prevented. Clinical trials are approved as safe prior to their execution.
