Einstein Meets Hippocrates

The development of a new drug can take many, many years and millions and millions of dollars before it is determined to be safe and effective. Now a physician/mathematician Dr. David Eddy has developed a physiology-based. clinically realistic computer model of the human called Archimedes. This model is designed to mathematically reproduce the complex workings of the human system for the purpose of evaluating one treatment over another based on hard evidence. But how does the controversial model work? According to Eddy, Archimedes has established 74 clinical validations so far. This work is most fascinating and may eventually become an effective and economical aid for medical research.

PositiveTip: No matter how wonderful modern technologies become, it is well to remember the Bible says “I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are Your works” (Psalm 139:14).
