My text: このような、人での効き目や安全性などを調べる研究のことを「臨床試験」といい、その中でも国(厚生労働省)に医薬品として認めてもらうために行う臨床試験を特に「治験」と呼びます。

My issue: 医薬品. Do we translate this here as a drug or a Pharmaceutical drug?

My understanding: This type of research to determine the efficacy and safety of a drug in humans is called a "clinical trial," and clinical trials conducted to have a drug/pharmaceutical drug approved by the government (Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare) are called "clinical trials.
