Medical - Medical (general) / exercise/connective tissue
French term or phrase: etre son propre témoin.
This is about testing a connective tissue treatment on humans.

Does it mean that within the group of volunteers, each volunteer also acted as (their own) "control subject" (i.e in that they were tested on one side [leg] and not on the other)? I can't think what else it could mean.

La première étude portait sur 10 volontaires sains. Au sein de chaque échantillon, chaque sujet était son propre témoin. La méthodologie était la suivante ; le côté testé recevait la technique LPG® appliqué grâce au Cellu M6® pendant que le côté « contrôle » ne recevait aucune technique.
