and which are in the control group. the participants are also unaware of their
group and some participants are given aspirin while others are given a placebo.
what's this procedure known as? and here the people in charge double-blind phase
1 through 3 and controlled .okay well let's start with all those clinical
trial answers. or sure mom won't mind. the first stage or phase of a clinical trial
is when a drug is first tested on humans. which doesn't sound all that safe ,but it
is because numerous preclinical and phase zero tests come before it .in test
tubes on animals and through human micro dosing. stage one comes when scientists
are sure it's safe enough to test as normal doses, but it's also not at all [man peers over glasses at kids]
with question described so we can cross out b. stage 2 comes after that. while
stage 1 aims to test safety half-life and tolerability stage 2 is more focused
on the biological changes caused by the drug. like does the drugs actually have a
positive effect on the human body .an important stage in clinical trials, sure.
but not at all to do with what our research was doing. this is followed by
stage 3 which is focused on the efficacy of the drug within the context of a
clinical practice this is the gold standard stage which occurs across large
patient groups in order to see if the drug is ready for the medical market.
only eighteen percent of drugs that make it to stage two get this far and this
answer is zero percent of what we're looking for. but what about a controlled
procedure? the actions of our researcher definitely fit into this answer because [scientist mixes solution]
it simply describes a series of policies and procedures set in place to ensure
quality control and accuracy with in a study. unfortunately it's not quite
specific enough. this leaves us with a the correct answer a double-blind
procedure describes when both the researcher and the participants are
blind to which group the participants belong to. it ensures there's no bias on
behalf of the researcher when making observations and also prevents
participants from acting a certain way and skewing result. sounds exactly like
the procedure described. unless you feel like making a bad pun. [kid lines up rats wearing sunglasses]
