The Development Process for New Dermatologic Medicines
There are many medications a dermatologist can prescribe to treat conditions like acne and fungal infections, but new medicines are constantly being developed in an effort to produce more effective, safer treatments. When you watch this featured video, you’ll learn about the incredible investments in time and dollars that go into making each new drug.
For every successful new medication, researchers had to test about 25,000 compounds. Each compound that shows potential as a new drug is put through rigorous lab testing, followed by multiple rounds of clinical trials to determine whether it’s effective and safe for use in humans.
