A clinical trial is any research that prospectively assigns human subjects (patients or healthy volunteers) to one or more healthcare interventions. A 'health care intervention' can be a drug, vaccine, surgical treatment, device, behavioural modification, preventive measure or a process of care change, that would lead to a change in a health-related outcome. All clinical trials need prospective registration in a Clinical Trials Registry (i.e before the recruitment of the first participant).
