An OBSERVATIONAL STUDY collects and analyzes data from participants in order to better understand a disease and to further the development of biomarkers and improved treatments.  For example, participants may be asked to complete questionnaires, provide blood or CSF samples, undergo scans, or use a wearable device. Data may be collected at a point in time or longitudinally.

recruiting PARKINSON'S DISEASE trials


An INTERVENTIONAL STUDY (or Clinical Trial) is a clinical study in which participants are assigned an intervention such as a medication, device, or procedure, so that researchers can evaluate its effects on biomedical or health-related outcomes.  Participants may receive diagnostic, therapeutic, or other types of interventions.  Randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trials are the gold standard for assessing the safety and effectiveness of a therapy.     Clinical trial phase definitions
