Why are eligibility requirements important?

Published by

The reason that clinical trials require eligibility criteria is because there are substantial dissimilarities among patients even if they possess the same disease or condition. These differences can alter the results in a clinical study and make it more difficult to determine if a new drug or treatment is working to the best of its ability in targeting the main pathogen or deficiency in the body. Therefore, when a clinical trial is utilizing a controlled study group by recruiting individuals that are more alike in fundamental aspects, the research team can be more certain that results occur from the treatment and not from outside influences, such as dissimilar genetics and conditional backgrounds.
