The period of recovery and return to a normal healthy state.

A basic collection of signs and symptoms.
The initial stage of cell damage often causes an alteration in metabolic reactions.
If the factor causing the damage is removed quickly, the cell may be able to recover and return to its normal state.
If the noxious factor remains for an extended period of time, the damage becomes irreversible and the cell dies.
Initially, cell damage does not change cell metabolism, structure, or function.
Neither the members of the control group or the experimental group nor the person administering the treatment knows who is receiving the experimental therapy.
Both groups of research subjects and the person administering the treatment know who is receiving the experimental therapy.
The research subjects do not know, but the person administering the treatment knows who is receiving placebo or standard therapy.
Only members of the control group know they are receiving standard therapy.
