I/II - A combination of phases: (1) Research Studies that focus on the safety of a drug. The goal is to determine the drug's most frequent and serious adverse events and, often, how the drug is broken down and excreted by the body. These studies usually involve a small number of participants; and (2) Research Studies that gather preliminary data on whether a drug works in people who have a certain condition/disease (that is, the drug's effectiveness). For example, participants receiving the drug may be compared to similar participants receiving a different treatment, usually an inactive substance (called a placebo) or a different drug. Safety continues to be evaluated, and short-term adverse events are studied.
