Adverse Preclinical Events – Now What?

Posted by cdavenport on Thursday Aug 4, 2011 Under Drug Safety, TigerU

Drug development is a complicated, often convoluted process.  The ability to predict drug toxicity in humans from nonclinical data remains a major challenge.  Since you can’t “erase” an adverse event, optimization of preclinical dose selection is essential.  This presentation outlines the process for dealing with adverse preclinical / nonclinical events in order to 1) optimize the chances of successful drug development, or 2) to create a scientific basis for early termination of drug development.  Conclusion: Experience counts!  There is no single answer for all problems.  Use of sound scientific and business judgement generally yields the best outcome.
