In general, clinical studies help to find treatments or improvements in existing ones in order to improve the quality of life of patients with the diseases studied. They also offer the possibility of accessing new treatments at no cost to the patient and have a duration of up to three years. In particular the Clinical Studies in Ophthalmology, also have a duration of three years.
The clinical studies are made up of 4 phases, the first one will analyze the safety of the treatment with a small number of people who do not have the disease.
The second phase is carried out with patients who have the disease and with the results, the first analysis of its safety and efficacy is made, in the third phase, the number of patients increases and the effects of the drug with the disease are analyzed that you want to treat, this is where the efficacy and safety of the treatment are checked before it is marketed.
Finally, there is the fourth phase where the treatment is already authorized to be marketed and only the patients who consume it are monitored in the long term, in this way it can be detected if there are adverse reactions, which are of very low incidence.
