News in brief: The origins of modern-day medicine

A booklet explaining where medicines come from will be available for GPs in the autumn. It follows the progress of medicine from basic research up to the point when new medicine is prescribed for the patient. The booklet outlines the role of animal research and clinical trials. It is produced by the Coalition for Medical Progress, an alliance of organisations that aims to ensure the UK continues to lead advances in human and animal medicine.
