Natural History Study

A natural history study is a preplanned intended to track the course of the disease. Its purpose is to identify demographic, genetic, environmental, and other variables (e.g., treatment modalities, concomitant medications) that correlate with the disease’s development and outcomes. Natural history studies are likely to include patients receiving the current standard of care and/or emergent care, which may alter some manifestations of the disease.

  • Relating to criminal convictions and offences
  • Results in a risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, taking into account the nature, context, scope and purposes of the processing
