Drug Design and Clinical Trials
Drug design is a process to find or to search new medicament depending on the biological targets. The drug which is a small molecule affects the biomolecules by activating or inhibiting the function, giving beneficial effect to the individuals. The design of the drug should be complementary to the target in shape and charge so that they can interact and bind with the receptor. It can be computerised as a whole or aided by drug design. This is useful in the search or finding of the drug based on the computational methods, which can be selected by improved affinity, stability and selectivity.
The long process that begins in a research lab ends up with Clinical Trials. It is a research study that involves volunteers. After long years of research works in order to understand its effects on cancer cells in the lab and in animals, a new treatment is used for people in clinical trials. Clinical Trials help doctors to find better treatments and ways to prevent cancer and other diseases. They also help to answer other questions, such as how to prevent disease or manage symptoms and side effects.
