Community-based clinical trial (CBCT)

Community-Based Clinical Trial (CBCT) refers to a clinical trial conducted primarily through primary-care physicians, community health centers, and local outpatient facilities rather than academic research centers. CBCTs are held to the same standards as clinical trials at academic centers, including Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval. CBCTs have similar designs as clinical trials at academic research centers (for example, the trial may be desinged as a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled study).
