Introduction

Clinical Research is a branch of Medical Science –a “medicalized” activity. It consists of surveys, studies, and projects to determine the safety and effectiveness of medications, devices, diagnostic products, and treatment regimens intended for human use. Clinical research is conducted to discover new knowledge, whereas clinical practice (what doctors do) uses existing knowledge to treat (usually) known illnesses.
