From the influenza pandemic, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, venereal disease, drug and alcohol abuse, microbiology, metabolic diseases and mental health to cancer, arthritis, musculoskeletal and skin diseases, the NIH has invested in treating and curing them all and every other threat to the health of the nation in between. From the MHS’ beginnings in the 1880s examining passengers on arriving ships for clinical signs of infectious diseases like cholera and yellow fever to prevent epidemics to 2013 and the introduction of the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative budgeted at $100 million in its first year, it is not surprising that the NIH is the largest biomedical research agency in the world.
It practically takes a medical degree to find the right clinical trial. But new tools powered by machine learning could make them more accessible.
Health-related data is becoming more valuable, especially as research institutions and hospitals start using machine-learning to make sense of the growing volume of information. Sometimes, institutions join with private companies in the pharmaceutical or tech industry or share data with other researchers. While it’s impossible to predict all future uses of the data, participants should be aware of who might have access to their information, and how it will be protected to safeguard their privacy, ethicists said.
When the results of clinical trials aren’t made public, the consequences can be dangerous — and potentially deadly.
Companies use science to their advantage in both subtle and extreme ways.
Medical historian Alice Dreger argues against a worrying trend of researchers conducting clinical trials without fully informing the participants.
We are just 3% of the world’s effort.
