Research and clinical trials

All treatments must be fully researched before they can be adopted as standard treatment for everyone. This is so that we can be sure they work better than the treatments we already use, and so we know that they are safe.

What clinical trials are

Trials aim to find out if a new test or treatment is safe or works better than current ones.
