Case Study #3

1. In the NoPain drug trials, phase I clinical trials did not have a placebo group because different phases are testing different aspects of the drugs. Phase I was meant to first screen the drug safety for human subjects. In phase II, the research was meant to see who would benefit from taking the drug, the benefits realized, and best administrative routes of the drug.

Reasons are that there may be an airborne pathogen that surfaced, the equipment may have not been disinfected completely, or there was a possibility of a contamination because staff did not practice proper protocol for hygiene, such as hand washing (sounds like a lawsuit). 

8. If the physician were to provide the patient with antibiotics that he wanted administered rapid and prolonged, he should go the intravenous route.

9. The use of international units is important in medicine because it tells us the quantity for substance such as fat-soluble vitamins, hormones and vaccines. IU is also important because they can tell us the specific amount of a substance needed in order to produce an effect. 

10.

b. Gastrectomy: removal of the stomach

d. Gastrocentesis: puncture in the stomach
