Clinical trials, also called research studies, are managed by government agencies, educational institutions, private not-for-profit organizations, or commercial businesses, to develop, produce, and evaluate the effectiveness of new treatments and therapies for diseases. New trials are added on a routine basis, and many clinical trials accept only a limited number of participants.
