    Post if the results are good for

    Dear teachers,

    Do these sentence read well?

    If the results from the laboratory are good for this new medicine I created, we could start thinking about selling it.
    If the medicine I created show good results ...

    Thank you

    'Create' does not collocate well with 'medicine'.

    New medicines undergo lengthy and stringent tests and protocols before being brought into use.

    Change 'medicine' to 'backscratcher' or 'rat trap' and you're good to go.

    "Developed" would be a good substitute.
