Background: Statistics is a science and it is a tool in biomedical sciences, pharmacology and other sciences. Its tools are very important and powerful in pharmacological research. In this article, I have to discuss about the contribution of statistician/Biostatistician, selection of topic for a study, formation of hypothesis, sample size determination, selection of appropriate statistical tests and fixing the level of significant for a study/research.
Methods: Statistics is very much useful to be conduct the hypothesis testing and to make a decision on the experiments in pharmacy/pharmacological research. It tools are using to find the efficacy of a drug and to find out which drug is superior and which one is having efficacy in treatment/healing. Discuss about various topics related to pharmacological research here.
Results: Statistical tools are very much useful to the pharmacologists in the way of how to use it in an appropriate way in their research. Statistical tools are using in many fields like sciences, medical, nursing and pharmacy. Tools are very much essential and important to prove the results scientifically in pharmacological research.
Conclusion: The pharmacologists are to be trained in statistical tools and its applications in a good manner then only they have to use the statistical tools in their clinical research and in career. So, the sound knowledge of statistical tools and its applications are needed to the pharmacologist for their future to conduct research to get the correct results at the end of their research.
