Hyperprolactinemia is a treatable disease characterized by abnormally high levels of the hormone prolactin in the blood. The mechanisms underlying the illness are incredibly complex: they involve regulation by various hormones, neurotransmitters and neuromodulators. Pfizer are an American pharmaceutical company that have created Dostinex, a drug that successfully reverses the illness. Its action is also based on a mixture of intricate biochemical processes.
It is an intense bit of information to process for biologists, let alone general public. In order to clearly illustrate how Dostinex works in action, Pfizer decided to use some medical-themed animation. Bright visual images make the theory behind the drug’s action easier to grasp.
Let’s have a more extended look at the problem and the way Nanobot Medical approached it.
