double blind
  • Get to know the timing of clinical trials as well as the processes that take place in each phase.

The duration of the tests varies:

  • Phase 1 is very short. We only aim to see if the child has something, if he tolerates the treatment and if there is any side effect.
  • In Phase 2, the goal is to get to know the effective dose from the study performed in a given time.
  • Phase 3 can be extended. It is important to confirm that over time there are no problems arising as a result of the treatment.
