  • Biopsy : Removal of a small sample of tissue from the body (skin, for example).
  • Blind : When the patient doesn`t know which group they are in, it's called a single-blind trial. When neither the doctor nor the patient know what group the patient is in, this is called a double-blind trial. When both patient and doctor know which group the patient is in, this is called an open trial.
