Start Clinical Trial Planning Early

One of the most common questions drug developers working on their preclinical testing ask is, “when do we begin planning our IND (or CTA)?”

The simplest answer is – it depends. Do you have the following?

  • Proof-of-concept scientific data
  • Early Pharmacokinetic information
  • Target Indications selected or prioritized for clinical trials
  • Evidence of GMP manufacture
  • Funding secured for clinical trials
  • Drug stability data
  • Nonclinical toxicology studies

Once you have decided to bring your therapeutic forward to clinical trials, it is then time to begin working on your IND/CTA and starting to plan your trial(s).
