Experimental Epidemiology

An epidemiological investigation that utilises an experimental model to confirm a causal relationship suggested by observational studies is termed as Experimental Epidemiology. It deals with various factors relationships in determining the frequency and distribution of diseases in a community. There are three case types in experimental epidemiology: randomized controlled trial- for a new medicine or drug testing; field trial- conducted on those at high risk of contracting a disease; and community trial- research is conducted on an entire community or neighbourhood. The former one determines the efficacy of a particular treatment, while other trials may be preventive intervention.
