International Clinical Trials Day 2015

Every year International Clinical Trials Day is marked around the world on or near the May 20th to celebrate the day that James Lind began his controlled trial comparing the different treatments for scurvy on the 20th May 1747.

Thanks to James Lind, carefully regulated Clinical Trials are the most effective way to establish which new treatments are beneficial for patients and improve their outcomes. International Clinical Trials Day provides a focal point to raise awareness of the importance of clinical research.
