Drug Development Process

We've all had to depend on prescription drugs to help remedy or cure an ailment, but very few understand the extensive approval process that is involved with each new medication. With approximately 2 billion prescriptions being filled each year in the United States, the clinical drug development process may be one of the most difficult in the world.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) closely monitors new drugs currently in development. Before any prescribed drugs are made available to the public, it must endure various clinical trials and testing. At times, it can take more than 10 years and cost millions of dollars, but safely distributing these prescription drugs is of paramount importance.
