    If you are referring to clinical trials, this statement is probably telling you that patients who willingly agreed to participate in a clinical research trials and they are voluntarily randomized. These patients have to sign an informed consent to be recruited to the clinical trial.

    Typically in any clinical trials, the recruited patients can choose to terminate their participation half way through the trial for whatever reason it may be. This is the patient's right to informed consent. Hope this answer your question.
