Do you have IND tools available to help me plan ahead?

Simply, yes. A skilled partner with experience in this area can help customize an approach for your IND-enabling studies to succeed. Before you begin, you should consider your test article availability, formulations, species selection, potential biomarkers, therapeutic indications, and patient profiles.

Choosing a partner that truly supports you along the way can make all the difference in submitting your investigational new drug application. Beware of inexperienced or piecemeal providers, whose poor planning and execution can result in the need to repeat and perform additional studies.

Our experts have strategically selected some tools that can help you plan ahead. Navigate through our eGuide, understand how long it takes to execute an investigational new drug program from start to finish, and gain insights from industry experts in biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies.

Regulatory Resources

In the fast-paced world of innovations and scientific advancement, the global regulatory landscape is always changing. Understanding the guidelines of your respective Regulatory Body is paramount for success. These IND-enabling programs require specific studies that evaluate the efficacy and safety of the product. Pharmacology studies most often consist of in vitro and in vivo studies, the new drug’s intended target, and the desired effect.

Once proof-of-concept is demonstrated in the pharmacology studies, the nonclinical safety studies (i.e., the toxicology studies) evaluate the safety profile of the drug. This includes profiling the drug’s effect on DNA (genotoxicity), critical organ systems (i.e., cardiovascular, respiratory, and central nervous system effects through safety pharmacology), and general toxicity (through animal studies in rodent and nonrodent species). Data is then collected and delivered as a report to the client, along with the necessary SEND datasets for final submission.
