During this drug discovery and development process, certain aspects are taken into consideration. The main aspects are given as bellow:
As our body evolves over time, so does the different diseases that can affect it. The development of any new drug will include a lot of analysis, especially when dealing with a new disease. An in-depth analysis of the illness as well as the physical or genetic makeup of the body affected by this disease will be taken into consideration. The drug development process will include analysis of proteins that are affected by the illness or even cause the illness to occur. A detailed study of the interaction of the proteins will help researched understand the illness and how human bodies deal with them. When sufficient evidence is provided, the drug discovery process proceeds to the development stage wherein refinements are made to safely increase the drugâ€™s effectiveness in treating the illness. During this process, a perfect balance between the drugâ€™s aggressiveness and safety are maintained to protect the human body.
Safety is an important paramount during the drug discovery and development process. Certain drugs can be destructive or lethal in nature. However, a refinement of these drugs often help combat diseases. So how do we determine which drugs are safe or not? This can be only established during the drug development stages. These stages include extensive designing, pre- screening and testing the drug before it can be deemed effective for safe use. Certain government guidelines must be followed when testing drugs, as there are limitations to testing on subjects other than human beings. When testing these drugs on humans, it would be carried out on healthy people so as to determine the effective properties of the drug. After this is carried out then the drug will be tested on a larger number of people with the illness in question.
These are important points that health care service consider during the drug discovery and development process. This ensures that the drugs that are produces are 100% effective and safe for consumption to treat any illness which otherwise would lead to fatal result in the past.
