Homework Answer on Use of Experimental Drugs on Infected Patients
According to Reinking & Von (2013), when developing an argument, the research topic must be examined from all sides, writing down the major reasons and justification for evidence. Use of dialogue in this case is to help in mental preparation and information organization. Ebola virus has caused a steer in many media outlets, social media, and generally amongst publics. The topic is controversial due to the nature of relationship involved.
The dangerous virus has claimed many lives in parts of Africa, and is believed to be spreading gradually, especially in the United States. Two patients who were believed to have contracted the Ebola virus were to be used in testing an experimental drug that was to be used to handle the Ebola virus. I was against the controversial move. First, what right do the researchers have to choose who can be used to test a drug? The fact that the drug has never been used on any person might have the possibility of harming the patients more.
I believe that animals have always been used in experiments. I therefore believe that use of animals would be more appropriate than experiments that use humans. Researchers claimed that use of patients suffering from the disease would create a practical scenario and lead to fast findings. I believe that a long term solution can only be found through slow research and not in a hurry. Human life is special and all humans should be treated with care. Using the two patients to test the drug is simply wrong.
