Glossary: Randomized Controlled Trial

A study in which participates are divided by chance into separate groups that compare treatments or other interventions. Using chance to divide people into groups means the groups will be similar and the potential effects of the treatment can be compared more fairly. At the time of the trial it is not known which treatment is best.
