Prospective study

26 de January de 2021

In clinical trials, a prospective study is the study in which the correct diagnosis or outcome is not known before starting the diagnostic test being evaluated.An example is a study of the phase I clinical trial, in which the drug being tested was administered to healthy people and observed for complications.

In general, prospective studies are considered to be more valid than retrospective as it incurs less bias when choosing the sample, and the results are reported as gained.
