Description

Exploratory approaches for first-in-human studies have been available through regulatory guidance in Europe and the USA for the last few years. These approaches have been employed usually with objectives to select a drug candidate for development or test a biochemical hypothesis using various endpoints designed to make a clear go/no go decision. The purpose of this workshop is to review at a very detailed level from both a regulatory and industrial perspective how these approaches have worked – successes, what worked, what did not work - focusing on the applied science and the regulatory process. The expectations are that issues/opportunities can be identified to help improve the process moving forward for small molecules as well as biologics. For those not directly involved with expCTAs, it will be a learning experience on the opportunities offered with this regulatory approach.
