Why May 20th?

National Clinical Trial Day is celebrated in May to honor the pioneering work of James Lind, a ship’s surgeon in the British Royal Navy. On May 20, 1774, Lind conducted what is considered the first randomized clinical trial, studying the effects of different treatments on scurvy in sailors. This historic event marked the beginning of clinical research as we know it today.

Concluding Remarks

As we observe National Clinical Trial Day, let us express our deep gratitude to the research sites and study teams for their unwavering dedication to advancing medical knowledge and improving patient outcomes. Together, we honor their remarkable achievements and commit ourselves to even greater progress in the pursuit of a healthier and brighter future.
