Pharmaceutical research & development at Salix
Before prescription drugs can be marketed, they must undergo a time-consuming, arduous research and development process. During this time—which can last more than a decade—the drug is extensively studied in the laboratory, in healthy human volunteers, and in people who actually have the condition the drug aims to treat. This process is imperative to ensure that prescription drugs are safe and effective.
