The news headlines this year have been dominated by the global pandemic, and of course how science has been fighting to combat it. With the announcements of a few successful vaccines over the past few months, it has shown us the importance of science when it comes to fighting medical problems that affect the entire human race.
Through the hard work of many doctors and scientists, there is now a light at the end of the tunnel and an optimism that we can all start to get on with our lives and begin to go back to normal next year.
This is not the only threat to human health however, and sadly there are many diseases, such as cancer which claim millions of lives still, and though there are some cancers which can now be treated much more effectively than in the past, there are still many people who die from this awful illness.
This shows us how important medical trials are when it comes to finding ways to treat these illnesses – adaptive phase 1 studies such as these run by Richmond Pharmacology are crucial when it comes to finding new ways to treat illnesses and ultimately give people their life back with he help of science and medicine.
As well as treatments, research and clinical trials are also useful for finding out more information about certain illnesses, as well as looking at ways that we can reduce our risk of developing a disease.
