Types of Clinical Research Studies
Food And Drug Administration (FDA)
The Food And Drug Administration closely monitors drug studies and must approve phase of the study. The FDA also has the power to intervene with a study if they feel there is a safety concern. This may be as simple as modifying the protocol to include more testing results or more severe as in postponing or even canceling a study. Ultimately, it is the FDA who will decide whether a drug is safe for the public or not.
