Who is in charge of a clinical trial?
There is a person who has designed the clinical trial, usually a doctor and/or a researcher, who knows the disease well and is looking for ways to improve the treatment.
Clinical trials are reviewed by different people before they can begin. Permission is required from different groups of doctors, nurses, scientists, and non-physicians who review each study before it begins. The Spanish Medicines Agency monitors and controls the safety of all medicines and clinical trials in our country.
There are very strict laws protecting the safety and well-being of adults and children in a clinical trial.
