The U.S. Food an Drug Administration (FDA) drug development process is presented here in a Naturalistic Fantasy (NF) Mold dialect:
discovery and development + preclinical 0.1% move to the next phase over several years + clinical PhaseOne 70% move to the next phase over several months, and then 33% in PhaseTwo over several months to two years, and then 25% to 30% in PhaseThree over 1 to 4 years + review 6 to 10 months + monitoring
or on average:
discovery and development + preclinical + clinical + review + monitoring: 1 drug out of 5,000 make to market over 12 years
What about treatment, which can only be tested on humans?
discovery and development + clinical + review + monitoring?
Inducing emotions and measuring the results?
Music, art, reading, film watching or game playing?
Patient caring in hospital, home or virtual space?
