The first group was given acetaminophen, and the second was given a placebo. They were instructed to take one 500mg pill each morning when the woke up, and one 500mg pill one hour before sleeping every day for three weeks.

Scientific Literacy Paper Question: What are the medicinal values of Echinacea? Journal Format: Plant Biotechnology Journal Literature Review Echinacea species (E. purpurea, E. angustifolia, and E. pallida) are believed to have first been used medicinally by Native American Indians and have since had a long history of therapeutic applications (Balan et al., 2012). The anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial qualities of Echinacea make it a popular treatment in fighting upper respiratory infections such as colds, but it has a wide array of other uses. This literature review aims to examine a small sample of those other uses by looking at the effects of Echinacea plants in the prevention and treatment of various diseases. As an example of Echinacea’s anti-inflammation properties, the aforementioned species, E. purpurea, has demonstrated the ability to treat acne.
Corticosteroids, either in pill or topical form are usually the first things that doctors will give patients with this.These medications reduce inflammation and can help to heal the blisters and relieve itching although they work well as a treatment they can have serious side effects if used for too long. Because of this your doctor would take you off the medication as soon as the blisters clear up. Another treatment option would be to take medication that suppresses the immune system so the disease cannot grow. But the problem with doing this is it puts you at risk for contracting other diseases.

It may or may not depending on what kind of insurance you have and how many hoops you have to jump thru before they actually authorize the medication or give you the okay for the technology to be used on you. In one article it is saying that the U.S. is one of the leading in health care technology. That we have machines that can save lives and that we have medications that can help us live longer with our diseases but it comes with a high cost. It is making the employer take most of the cost and the patient pay very little but is this really true. Most people have high deductibles before the employer will even start to pay some of the health insurance coverage.

Behring used this and Koch’s work to isolate anti toxins that would otherwise ,harm the body, to fight Diphtheria, Behring then found a way to inject it. Paul Ehrlich ( a member of Koch’s team) used his team to build on this work , he knew that certain dyes stained specific microbes (Koch’s work) furthermore with Behring’s work Paul tres to find a cure for syphillis a “magic bullet” that would only target the microbes and not the body. He managed to research seven years which was only made possible because of government funds. In 1909 Dr Hata had joined the research team and he reviewed the previous experiments.
Sure, using pharmaceutical drugs are safe when they are being used by the doctor’s prescription. However, when these drugs are being crushed and snorted, or being cooked down to a liquid form to be intravenously used or taken orally in very high doses these pharmaceutical drugs can be very fatal. The rise in young adults intravenously using pharmaceutical drugs is at an alarming rate. The thought of it being safer is because these drugs are approved by the FDA and are manufactured in a clean and controlled environment. Street drugs such as heroin and cocaine come in all sorts of potencies and it is never known how strong or weak the drug is until taken by the user.
