Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), also called benign prostatic hypertrophy or enlarged prostate, is a disease that affects men. Due to BPH, the vast majority of men develop an abnormal enlargement of the prostate, which affects the urinary and reproductive systems. There are several treatment options available to treat BPH, but that doesn’t mean that research shouldn’t still evolve and try to find better, comfortable and faster solutions to treat this condition.

Among those studies and research, we can find clinical trials. Clinical trials are extremely important scientific studies that are used to assess new medical treatments, including treatments for diseases like benign prostatic hyperplasia.
But what exactly are clinical trials and how can they be of use to BPH?
Clinical trials are well-designed studies that collect information about new treatments for diseases and disorders. Most of the time, the trials are for medications, but clinical trials also test other approaches, such as stem cell therapies, surgical techniques, tests for diagnosis, or medical devices.
