Great article at Scientific American on the 10 Promising Treatments for World’s Biggest Health Threats.
Treatments for diabetes, smoking, Alzheimer’s disease and lung cancer are just a few of the potentially lifesaving cures Scientific American has chosen to highlight in this year’s roundup of drugs you’ve never heard of, despite their potentially huge impact on global health.
These 10 treatments, all of which could significantly impact global health and wellness, are currently running the last gauntlet a pharmaceutical must run before it becomes available to the public–the clinical trial. During this trial researchers test the drug on humans, carefully observing its side effects as well as its overall effectiveness.
Check out this story for information on promising treatments for these diseases:
- Alzheimer’s Disease–Alzhemed
- Dengue–Live attenuated 17D yellow fever and dengue chimera
- Diabetes–Technosphere Insulin System
- Hepatitis C–E1E2/MF59
