    • During clinical trials, randomization is used to ensure that an equal proportion of patients receive every specific treatment by chance and that these groups share the same measured and unmeasured characteristics. Throughout the trial, the results of each treatment are compared at intervals, and as soon as one treatment is found to be more effective than the other, the trial is stopped.
    • Blinding plays an important role in ensuring the validity of a randomized controlled trial. A double-blinded experiment is one in which neither the participants nor the experimenters are aware of which treatment each participant is receiving.
