Abstract

Race-based medicine is an emerging field in pharmacology, a field which aims to create a specialty market based on racial groups. Within this field, the drug BiDil set precedents for this area of medicine, targeting African Americans as its first racial group. Immediately, the idea of race as a proxy for disease caused much debate within the medical and pharmaceutical communities.
