USC has adopted the NIH revised definition of “clinical trial”. The new definition makes clearer the difference between clinical trials and clinical research studies and includes socio-behavioral clinical trials. No changes have been made to the NIH definition of a “Phase III clinical trial.”
The definition is effective for competing NIH grant applications and contracts proposals on January 25, 2015.
