Clinical trials can be defined as an experiment which is conducted in a controlled environment to test the efficacy of drugs, procedures, methodology before bringing into the public domain. The clinical trials started in 2nd century BC by Daniel & King Nebuchadnezzar. Formal recorded therapeutic clinical trial was started way back in 1537 AD by a Surgeon. Current clinical trials include clear guidelines, adhering to regulatory requirements, getting consent from the patients, ensuring safety of the patients, adopting ethical practices, close monitoring of the trials and using advanced statistical tools to analyze and report the findings.
