Health outcomes aren't jeopardized when patients participate in randomized clinical trials of approved treatments, according to a new study. The results address misgivings some physicians have had about whether enrolling patients in a clinical trial might have a detrimental impact on their ability to receive individualized treatment. Conducted by a team led by Yale University's Dr. Cary P. Gross, the study found that patients who participated in one of 25 clinical trials had outcomes similar to those who decided not to participate. The study was published in the journal Public Library of Science - Medicine.
