Step ii: Specify the therapeutic objective
It is very useful to define exactly what you want to achieve with a drug, for example, to decrease the diastolic blood pressure to a certain level, to cure an infectious disease, or to suppress feelings of anxiety. Always remember that the (patho)physiology determines the possible site of action of your drug and the maximum therapeutic effect that you can achieve. The better you define your therapeutic objective, the easier it is to select your P-drug.
