What Are Clinical Trials?
Clinical trials carry out tests on people to see whether a candidate therapy is safe and works to counter the effects of a disease.
Before human patients are the subjects, therapy is tested in cells or tissue grown in the lab, and then in animals, to provide the best possible assurance that a drug will be safe for people to take.
ClinicalTrials.gov maintains historical data on all clinical trials. To research more ALS drug candidates, click here to visit clinicaltrials.gov.
