Phase 4 involves further study of therapies already FDA-approved.

INTERVENTIONAL STUDIES evaluate medications, devices or procedures to determine the effect on biomedical or health-related outcomes. Randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trials are the gold standard for assessing the safety and effectiveness of a therapy.

Web-based studies can be a convenient way to participate in research since they can usually be done from the comfort of home.  They may involve questionnaires, surveys, and the use of smartphones or other mobile devices.
