Treatments based on theory and anecdote with extravagant public claims without being properly tested has become past time in medical practice. Only valid unbiased and relevant evidence obtained by methodology of clinical trials should be adopted in medical practice and practice guidelines. In such way clinical decisions are based on evidence rather than on authority. Inevitable part of clinical trials is medical ethics formally defined within the Nuremberg Code, World Medical Association Declaration of Helsinki and guidelines issued by the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare. This paper presents in short history of clinical trials and current status worldwide.
