The paper presents the results of a concurrent comparison of patients treated under trial conditions and under routine service conditions. In all, 166 patients were allocated to the two groups by randomization. Patients in both the groups were prescribed the same drug regimen. Those belonging to the Trial group had the same facilities as are offered in controlled clinical trials. The same doctor attended to this group, on priority basis, clinic working timings were flexible for these patients and the services of two health visitors for taking prompt defaulter action were available. Patients belonging to the Routine group were attended to in the usual routine of the Centre and no special facility was given.
