Randomization in clinical trials and experimental molecular medicine

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Randomization has become a standard procedure for clinical trial design, and is also widely used in other areas of biological research. This article will examine the reasons why randomization has become a sine qua non in some areas, yet remains far less widely adopted in experimental studies of molecular medicine. Should randomization be used routinely in the design of most laboratory experiments?
