    An alternative method for producing disease specific models uses homologous recombination of a gene construct in cultured embryonic stem cells to produce a cell line having a precise gene replacement that can be used to create animals transmitting the gene replacement through the germline. The goal of these methods is to make a null mutation, known as a knockout, and replace the specific gene of interest with one that is inactive or altered. Models of a wide variety of human disorders have been constructed using this technique (49).

    An absence of drug was demonstrated in some of the ‘‘active’’ volunteers, and drug was detected in some of the ‘‘placebo’’ volunteers. Because an elaborate system of checks and crosschecks was in place to guard against the possibility of drug mispackaging, it was impossible to think about such a wholesale mixup. After considerable inquiry, an almost impossible reason surfaced. A disgruntled employee had deliberately sabotaged the packaging by intentionally mixing drug and placebo. A packaging error such as the one described is extremely costly.

    A type of tribulation that occurs more in Phase II, and particularly in Phase III trials, involves adherence to the drug regimen. Drug adherence is loosely described as the number of dosages actually taken by a patient compared with the number prescribed. Alas, as with most things in life, further reflection reveals a far more complex subject. Were dosage administrations properly spaced, were they taken with meals (if required) or without food (if required), were they taken with forbidden concomitant medications?
