Advances in medicine and access to better and better drugs is possible thanks to scientific research in the field of biomedicine. Substances are first tested in pre-clinical trials using tissues, computer models and laboratory animals. If the results are promising, drugs enter the clinical trial phase, during which they are tested on human volunteers. It is only upon the completion of this phase that medicine is cleared for sale at drugstores.Read More o Medicine: from the clinic to the drugstore
