West Suffolk Hospital
is running 115 clinical trials
open to new subjects or in
follow-up.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT UNIT WEST SUFFOLK HOSPITAL
Clinical Trials Phases I & II
Phase I (safety and tolerability) trials
which involve first human exposure
to a therapeutic agent.
Phase II clinical trials primarily are
intended to demonstrate whether or not
the new drug will provide any benefit and
whether that benefit is sufficiently better
than standard treatments to warrant
further development.
RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT UNIT WEST SUFFOLK HOSPITAL
Clinical Trials Phases III & IV
• Phase III trial are randomized controlled, on
large patient groups. They are aimed at
being the definitive assessment of how
effective the drug is, in comparison with
current standard treatment. This is the kind
of study that patients from this hospital are
most often recruited into.
• Phase IV trials involve the safety
surveillance and ongoing technical support
of a drug after it receives permission to be
sold.

Health Technology Devices (HTD)
The Health Technology Devices Programme aims to
stimulate and promote collaborative research that
contributes towards the development of new
technology which meets patient needs. The HTD
programme focuses on supporting the development
of new medical devices and healthcare
technologies that are capable of exploitation by the
healthcare industries. HTD Calls are invited and
handled through the HTD web portal at:

The First Clinical Trial
in 1747 James Lind compared six treatments for
scurvy (non-randomised open label)
Two patients were given cider
Two elixir vitriol
Two vinegar
Two sea water
Two spices, garlic & mustard seeds
Two oranges and lemons
Only the sailors given the fruit recovered
It took 40 years for the Admiralty to issue lemon juice
to all ships

Research Grants
Research for Innovation Speculation and
Creativity (RISC)
RISC is a response-mode funding programme
established to provide research of direct
benefit to users of the NHS in England.
The RISC programme is for potentially
paradigm-changing projects in Health
Services and Public Health Research.

HTA Clinical Trials
• The HTA programme commissions research
in three different ways:
1. By advertising standard calls for research
proposals that address specific topics
2. By advertising special calls for research
proposals that address themed areas
3. By funding HTA clinical trials and evaluation
studies that are proposed directly by
researchers.
