Current Antibiotics, Medications Ineffective Against Diseases: Sherwani
Research, according to Sikandar Khan Sherwani, has shown that antibiotics and other medications are no longer effective against a number of diseases.
Sikandar Khan Sherwani, an assistant professor in the department of microbiology, claims that since current antibiotics and other medications are ineffective against diseases, research on novel medications is required.
These remarks were made by him during a seminar held on Friday at the Federal Urdu University of Arts, Science, and Technology (FUUAST), which was sponsored by the department of microbiology. The Center for Quality Sciences’ Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Obaid Ali, spoke at the seminar.
He claimed that the conflict of interests and biased behavior in clinical trials have increased to alarming levels and that this trust crisis is a tragedy.
The lack of vulnerability knowledge regarding biological mechanisms and the complex reactions linked to drug interactions and other medical interventions, he continued, causes prediction and interpretation to be uncertain.
The inability to keep promises or claims has been a serious concern for the past 20 years. The scientific method is the most crucial and important aspect of science. The third leading cause of death worldwide is medical errors. “Nine out of every 26 studies turn out to be false.”
He clarified the distribution of homogeneity and conflicts of interest. When describing the seminar’s goals and objectives, Sikandar Khan Sherwani, an assistant professor in the department of microbiology, emphasized that current antibiotics and other medications are ineffective against diseases.
There is a need for new medications, but research takes time. From the clinical trial to drug development, from good drug invention to testing and discovery through various stages to when the drug is commercially available, research students have all the pertinent information.
Research, according to Sikandar Khan Sherwani, has shown that antibiotics and other medications are no longer effective against a number of diseases. Numerous students studying microbiology attended the seminar. Professor Dr. Zareena Ali gave the certificates to the seminar’s organizers at its conclusion.
