« Back to Glossary Index

In a randomized controlled clinical trial, participants or subjects are assigned randomly (i.e., by chance) to separate groups that receive different treatments or other interventions. Using chance to divide people into groups means that the groups will be similar and that the effects of the treatments they receive can be compared more fairly.
