    help to fight against illness

    Is this sentence correct?

    "Many drugs and medicines that help to fight now against illness were invented by animal experiments."

    No. Medicines are not "invented by animal experiments". Some medicines are tested on animals.

    Also, 'now' is unusually placed, and probably not necessary.
