Some of them are lack of awareness, enrollment obstacles, barriers to ethnic minorities and economically disadvantaged, elderly barriers, and physician‐related barriers. Lack of awareness is one of the main barriers in recruiting subjects to the study. About 40% of adults do not have any idea about clinical research and how clinical trials are performed.

Using the aforementioned “shorthand” nomenclature developed for discussion purposes only and not recognized by regulatory agencies, Phase A trials might involve multiple anatomic sites, disease subtypes, and clinical utilities performed at a single investigational site (or a very small number of sites) for the primary purpose of optimizing the intervention and the real‐time imaging inherent in the procedure, developing early subject‐level safety data, exploring early lesional‐level efficacy data, and establishing the quality and performance metrics to be used in subsequent more advanced clinical trial phases presuming success at this level of investigation.
