Randomized controlled trials are on the pinnacle to create evidence to treat newborn infants according to Evidence-Based Medicine. Here at  CSAR we understand that and are actively involved in numerous randomized controlled trials to create the evidence needed to make babies better. 

In fact, CSAR is the leading neonatal Trial-Centre in Canada currently organizing and or participating in more than 10 randomized controlled trials.
