Clinical Research Trials - 2
Narrator: This NIH Health Matters, I’m Joe Balintfy. There are many different types of clinical research trials. Dinora Dominguez, at the NIH says a type of clinical trial that is specific to the Clinical Center is a natural history study.
Dominguez: That is looking at somebody through the years and what’s the natural course if you will of the condition, of the disease, the diagnosis that they are looking at. Then there are clinical trials that actually start from phase zero all the way through phase four.
Narrator: Each phase helps researchers answer different questions. For details on clinical research trials, and information on how to participate, visit the website clinicalresearchtrials.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
