Virtual Bodies For Real Drugs: In Silico Clinical Trials Are The Future
Traditional clinical trials are equivalent of billions of dollars and years of hard work with no guarantee for the new drug to be approved by regulatory bodies, not to speak about the dangers of testing medication on animals and/or humans. What if we could take a radical turn? What if we conducted clinical trials on virtual bodies that could perfectly mimic human physiology? With the help of artificial intelligence, enhanced computer simulations, and advances in personalized medicine, in silico trials might be a reality in the coming years.
