Clinical trials bring us the new wonder drugs that would have been considered either magical or miraculous in earlier times. Are you interested in how drugs are tested to assure efficacy and safety?
On two episodes of Getting Better Health Care, clinical researcher Bea Abrams, PhD, with over 30 years experience in pharmaceutical development, explains the process of clinical trials done to bring a new drug to market. She shares with us critical information that lets us know how much we can trust new drugs and what to look out for.
In a subsequent episode, I’ll be talking with Dr. Lawrence Friedhoff — author of the book, New Drugs: An Insider’s Guide to the FDA’s New Drug Approval Process for Scientists, Investors and Patients — about myths that surround new drug development.
