Double-blind

(Science: statistics) a kind of clinical study in which neither the participants nor the person administering treatment know which treatment any particular subject is receiving. Usually the comparison is between an experimental drug and a placebo or standard comparison treatment.

this method is believed to achieve the most accuracy because neither the doctor nor the patient can affect the observed results with their psychological bias.
