Clinical research includes any study or trial involving people, be they adults or children of any age. It can include studies that aim to better understand how the body works and how diseases affect different people.
Research studies can involve, for example, sets of questions like aptitude tests to understand learning, exercise tests that explore how the heart, lungs, and body work, or blood-based tests. With blood-based tests, for example we can compare healthy immune systems and impaired immune systems with blood samples from children with diseases that affect the immune system. We also investigate pictures of the brain and body (e.g. radiographs, computer tomographies) in order to learn about normal structure and function.
The ECRAN Project has committed itself to explaining clinical research in an understandable way and to provide you with all essential information about the participation in clinical studies.
