In brief: Research on people
This is a clinical trial to test a new device in humans.
The device could be a new kind of metal rod for back surgery, an Insulin pump, etc. The device must be reasonably safe and the research must be approved by a board dedicated to ensure patient safety (irb). The device is used and compared to similar devices that have been in use. It can take many years to get results.
