Large randomized trials can produce quick results that are more reliable, more generalizable, and can be disseminated more widely. This paper provides an overview of randomized clinical trials and the need to assess moderate treatments effects. Then, obstacles and advantages of conducting randomized controlled clinical trials in China are presented. Many large scale randomized trials of treatments for heart attack, stroke, and cancer have been conducted in China, some of which have had a profound impact on medical research in China and the way these diseases are treated in other countries. Two successful randomized controlled clinical trials conducted in China are provided as examples.
