Abstract

Studies of drug development have described the role of clinical trials in the selection of drug profiles. This article presents a case study of the development of hormonal drugs in the 1920s and 1930s to illustrate that clinical trials have a more extensive role than is assumed. Clinical trials are instrumental in mediating the relationships between the pharmaceutical industry, the laboratory, and the clinic, resulting in a network of actors collectively creating medical knowledge, drugs, and markets for these drugs.
