German to English translations [PRO]
Medical
German term or phrase: Proband
This term occurs in a medical text, along with the word "patient" - e.g. Patient/Proband.

My guess is that it might mean something like "test subject" or "subject" of a study, but I would like to be sure & have some back-up. Any ideas?

Explanation:
You're right. The Duden for synonyms gives "Versuchsobjekt" as a synonym. Collins/Pons translates it as "guinea pig, experimentee".
