In an experiment or clinical trial, control subjects make up a group of participants who have characteristics similar to those of the treatment group, but they do not receive the treatment being studied. In observational studies, the control subjects have similar characteristics as those participants being studied, except that they do not have the symptom, disease, syndrome, or disorder being studied.
