I didn’t make up the protocols for drug testing. I’m not that powerful. That’s phase 1 of clinical trials.
I don’t know why you are mad at me?

Phase I Dose-ranging on healthy volunteers for safety Often subtherapeutic, but with ascending doses Clinical researcher 20–100 normal healthy volunteers (or cancer patients for cancer drugs) Approx. 70% Determines whether drug is safe to check

Phase 1 is the start, and if the drug isn’t harmful you can test further if it works on sick people.
If the drug is harmful in phase 1 it’s over.
