Clinical Research Trials - 1
Narrator: This NIH Health Matters, I’m Joe Balintfy. The Clinical Center at the NIH is the largest hospital in the world devoted to clinical research, and almost all of the patients cared for at the clinical center are also participants in clinical research trials and research studies. The NIH’s Dinora Dominguez says a research study can be any type of research.
Dominguez: But a clinical trial is what we predominantly concentrate on and that is where you are dealing with individuals, with human beings, and they are participating in a study related to a very specific question that an investigator or their team wants to find the answer to.
