Sometimes volunteers who have a certain disease are used in phase I instead of healthy volunteers if the drug is expected to have significant toxicity.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
