The FDA in Clinical Trials

Mar 23, 2011Clinical Trial, Uncategorized

What role does the FDA play in approving new drugs and medical treatments? The Food and Drug Administration’s job is to ensure medical treatments are safe for people to use and they do what they say they do. The FDA does not, however, develop new therapies, or conduct the clinical trials to demonstrate safety and effectiveness. FDA staff meets with researchers, and perform inspections of research study sites to protect the rights of participants and to verify the integrity of the data and the quality of the study.

If you would like to participate in a clinical trial go to to see if there’s a study for you.
