Safe and reliable drugs belong to the most impressive scientific achievements of mankind. One would only wish that there were more drugs such as penicillin which allows recovery from serious and painful bacterial infections in a matter of days, if not hours. Unfortunately, the discovery of such compounds with almost miraculous curing properties is a very rare event indeed.
