List of 16 Posts on Progression of Individual Therapeutic Classes


Of the 40 therapeutic classes (across 14 therapeutic categories) that have examined Progression of Modern Therapeutics (last report issued in early 2016, under Reports) a more extended reporting has been made on a total of 16 therapeutic classes, under Posts. The majority of these posts involved the following subtitles: Background, Drug Approvals, Comments, and References (as appropriate), as exemplified by the post on Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH: Relying on Mechanisms First Approved a Quarter of a Century Ago, August 2016, click here), in addition to a timeline chart illustrating the individual approved drugs and their mechanisms of action.

Since these posts on individual therapeutic classes were only listed under their months of posting, the purpose of this reporting is to summarize 16 of these therapeutic classes under their therapeutic categories, including the titles of these posts.
