    ........... indicate the new

    ........... indicate the new drug will cure infections.
    1. Experiments
    2. Tests
    3. Observations
    4. Trials

    Actually, those are all pretty good answers. I'm confused!

    New drugs typically undergo trials.

    I'd say that's the best answer.

    I agree with Rover that "trials" is the best answer. Before a new drug is released for sale, clinical trials are performed to see if the drug is safe and effective in the target species. "Experiments", for me, would be the second best answer.

    It's usually called "testing" or "experimentation" when carried out on animals, and called "trials" when the tests are carried out on humans.
