The third revision of ICH S5 contains guidance on incorporating nonhuman primates (NHPs) DART studies, including the appropriate study designs and appropriate group size. Some trends point to 14-16 pregnancies (6-8 infants) per group as an acceptable number, but some specialty endpoints (e.g., immunophenotyping, TDAR, learning and memory) may benefit from a bigger sample.

In part two of our four-part DART series, see why expertise matters when it comes to designing a DART study with NHPs. You’ll learn about unique insights and approaches to optimize your study design, reduce the need for additional animals, and save money on your research.

These will also be time after the presentation to get your questions answered by our presenters.
