Alexander Fleming is the man credited with the discovery, albeit it accidentally of Penicillin. This life saving medicine has had the most profound effect on the human race saving countless lives with its ability to dispel blood poisoning like sepsis. Without this miracle drug we would face a very difficult world indeed. What drove the great man to seek out a cure for this blight?

As with any medicine Penicillin required tests. This is where Paid Clinical Trials come in as they provide a decent bedrock for further research or even the launch of the medicine if successful. Fleming was determined for the work to be a success as he had seen firsthand the effects of sepsis and blood disorders in the past.

Fleming was a serving surgeon in the First World War. He saw the terrible injuries that war can cause and whilst he could save many a man and woman he was powerless against infections. The Antiseptics wipes and fluid that were used were fine for surface areas but eternally. Fleming began to make tests on body secreactions and found that a present enzyme was partially effective but not enough. Another answer had to be found.
