The long and incredible story of a tablet

Do you know the process involved in bringing a tablet onto the market? It needs lots of time, investment and the effort of a lot of people. The molecule first needs to be designed and synthesised, and then the researchers need to carry out animal and human testing on it. It can then finally be produced and prescribed once it's been approved.
