In the drug development process, drugs are clinically tested in very select patient populations. This means that once a drug gets approved, the drug is often given to quite a different kind of patient population, and the results of drug treatment could be different. For the big picture, read this compelling Star News Online article, "New Arena for Testing of Drugs: Real World."
I find the story so compelling for the following reasons . . .
- Patients, health care professionals, and the pharmaceutical industry bring their own unique health and business issues or needs to the table
- It's ultimately about the patient, and there's a need to know whether approved drugs help or harm in the real world
