What are trial phases?
Clinical trials testing new treatments are divided into different stages, called phases. The earliest phase trials may look at whether a drug is safe or the side effects it causes. Later phase trials aim to test whether a new treatment is better than existing treatments.
There are 3 main phases of clinical trials – phases 1 to 3. Phase 1 trials are the earliest phase trials and phase 3 are later phase trials.
Some trials have an earlier stage called phase 0, and there are some phase 4 trials done after a drug has been licensed.
Some trials are randomized. This means the people taking part are put into one of the treatment groups at random. Doing this means the results are more reliable.
