Everyday, doctors and scientists studiously calculate the right treatment or drug product to help ease pains and illnesses. Many times, they use animals with similar ailments as study guides. However, once the latest treatment and drug become approved, they are labeled as experimental treatments.
An experimental treatment is an internal medicine or an unproven therapy that may not be of high medical or therapy standards. In some cases, experimental treatments have good success. However, if people have adverse reactions after being treated, this may lead to medical malpractice.
When an experimental treatment is being tested, it is commonly known as a clinical trial. Four phases serve as vital points when scientists are evaluating the results. The four phases of experimental treatments according to the National Cancer Institute are:
ClinicalTrials.gov lists risks including possible life-threatening procedures and chance of not receiving beneficial results.
There are several kinds of experimental treatments for individuals suffering from Mesothelioma, a cancer associated with asbestos. However, they are all under their initial stages. Not all Mesothelioma experimental treatments were successful. Gene therapy and Photodynamic therapy proved to fail with disappointing results. Gene therapy treatments were successful with animals but displayed poor results in humans. Photodynamic therapy treatments proved to be of no significant benefit.
Individuals who suffer from Alzheimer's disease have tried the new experimental treatment drug called Dimebon. US News and World Report wrote Dimebon has shown great promise helping to improve the ability to perform daily tasks. After two analysis tests, results showed an increase in memory, orientation, and a better grasp of communicating with others.
