Most of the objectives of a Phase I study can often be met with relatively few subjects – many studies have fewer than 20 subjects. In essence, they are much more like closely controlled laboratory experiments than population-based clinical trials. Broadly speaking, Phase II trials aim to set the scene for subsequent confirmatory Phase III trials. Typically, although exceptions may occur, these will be the first ‘trials’ in patients. They are also the first to investigate the existence of possible clinical benefits to those patients.

In this trial both patients and the attending physicians are ‘blinded’ to the actual treatment given to individual patients. Such a ‘double-blind’ or ‘double-masked’ trial is a design that reduces any potential bias to a minimum. Such designs are not possible, however, in many circumstances and neither are those with a ‘no treatment’ control. In many situations, the ‘control’ will be the current best practice against which the new treatment will be compared. Should this turn out to be better than current practice then this, in its turn, may become standard practice against which future developments will be compared.
