On average this test will have approx one hundred thousand specimens from all over the world and it will increase or decrease depending on the severity of the side effects and cure that the drug will cure and its rate of use depending on the effected population.
To achieve the drug being put on the market it must have an effectiveness of a minimum 99%.
Inside Clinical Trials Testing Medical Products in People
In Phase 3 trials, the drug is studied in a larger number of people with the disease (approximately 1,000-3,000). This phase further tests the product's effectiveness, monitors side effects, and, in some cases, compares the product's effects to a standard treatment, if one is already available. As more and more participants are tested over longer periods of time, the less common side effects are more likely to be revealed.

The cure for cancer does exist, but thanks to collusion between the Medical & Insurance industrial complex and Big Tobacco, the cure will never be openly discussed. If you keep "treating" the symptoms of a disease instead of the underlying cause, you can make money off the patient until he dies. If you cure him, you can only make money off of him once. It's all a huge scam. I worked in the medical field for over twenty years and short of being able to surgically correct something, most doctors aren't any better than witch doctors.
