Monoclonal antibodies, believed by many scientists to be the realization of Paul Ehrlich's decades-old "magic bullet" theory, are fast becoming the ammunition against a wide variety of diseases.
The secretory products of cells called "hybridomas" (hybrid-myelomas), monoclonal antibodies are the...
Contrary to its reputation as a uniquely effective analgesic used by British physicians to ease the pain of patients dying of cancer, heroin has emerged from clinical trials in the United States looking much like morphine, from which it is derived.
Clinical comparisons of the two agents were...
Physician advertising and contract practices seem unlikely to change immediately, and the American Medical Association's current ethical guidelines will require no dramatic changes, if a long-contested Federal Trade Commission (FTC) order becomes final next week.
