Issues in the design and conduct of clinical trials

Issues in the design and conduct of clinical trials

Careful consideration of issues in the design and conduct of clinical trials is necessary for valid results to be achieved. Specifically, if the trial is randomized and well designed with respect to timing, pilot studies, choice of study population, sample size, duration of follow-up and subject compliance, it can offer reliable evidence about a positive, inverse or null effect of an intervention.
