Understanding Phase 1 Clinical Trials

Phase I Clinical Trials Information

These important trials are the first stage in studies that use actual human participants.

They usually evaluate:

  • Best way to administer drug- for instance by injection or orally
  • Frequency and amount of Dosage
  • Maximum Tolerated Dosage
  • Side Effects

Since these studies are embarking on the unknown, a phase I trial normally enrolls less than a dozen patients, reducing risk at this early stage of the drug evolution process.
