Medical research

  1. 1. MedicalResearch
  2. 2. About Medical Research Biomedical Research (or experimental medicine), in general simply known as medical research, is the basic research, applied research, Or translational research conducted to aid and support the body of knowledge in the field of medicine. Medical research can be divided into two general categories: the evaluation of new treatments for both safety and efficacy in what are termed clinical trials, and all other research that contributes to the development of new treatments. clinical research, microbiology, physiology, oncology, surgery and research on many other non- communicable diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
  3. 3. The latter is termed preclinicalresearch if its goal is specifically toelaborate knowledgefor the development of newtherapeutic strategies. A newparadigm to biomedical research isbeing termed translational research,which focuses on iterative feedbackloops between thebasic and clinical research domainsto accelerate knowledge translationfrom the bedside to the bench, andback again. Medical research mayinvolve doing research on publichealth,biochemistry, clinical research,microbiology, physiology, oncology,surgery and research on many othernon-communicable diseases such asdiabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
  4. 4. The increased longevity of humans over the past century can besignificantly attributed to advances resulting from medicalresearch. Among the major benefits have been vaccines formeaslesand polio, insulin treatment for diabetes, classes of antibiotics fortreating a host of maladies , medication for high blood pressure,improved treatments for AIDS, statins and other treatments foratherosclerosis, new surgical techniques such as microsurgery,and increasingly successful treatments for cancer.New, beneficial tests and treatments are expected as a result of theHuman Genome Project.Many challenges remain, however, including the appearance ofantibiotic resistance and theobesity epidemic.
